Our Company has not complied with certain statutory provisions under Companies Act Such non-compliances/lapses may attract penalties. Our Company has not filed return of allotments and Annual Returns appropriately with respect to shareholding records, such as the following: a. Names of certain joint holders are not mentioned in the Annual Return filed by our Company; b. In respect of the shares in our Company held by certain partnership firms, the Annual Returns and return of allotments do not mention the fact that shares were held by the partners on behalf of the firms concerned. Though our Company has appropriately maintained our Register of Members, Transfer Deeds and issued share certificates appropriately, inappropriate disclosures, as aforesaid, may in the future render us liable to statutory penalties. Further, our Company has delayed in complying with reporting requirements such as registration of resolutions, filing of form for change in designation of directors etc, as required to be filed under the Companies Act to the Registrar of Companies. Such delay/non-compliance may in the future render us liable to statutory penalties and disallowing the resolutions, which may have consequence of violation of certain statutory provisions under Companies Act Any penalty or action taken by any regulatory authorities in future for non compliance with provisions of accounting standards and other laws could impact the financial position of our Company. Our Company have not complied with certain Accounting Standards including disclosures related party transactions and Cash Flow Statement, in the past. Although, no show cause notice with respect the same has been received by the Company till date, we cannot assure penalties may not arise in future. Any penalty imposed for such non-compliance could affect our financial condition to that Page 15 of 370

17 Page 16 of 370 Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus extant. However, our Company is complying with all the accounting standards and has given effects in the restated financials statements for such non compliances. 4. Our business of Shrimp Farming is seasonal in nature. Our business is subject to seasonality with a significant portion of revenue generated primarily during the third quarter of each fiscal year. This seasonality is due to the harvesting of shrimps during that period. Our Company begins partial harvesting from 100 to 120 days of culture and final harvesting begins after 180 days from culture. Since our major source of revenue is from the sale of final harvesting of shrimps, our revenues are concentrated at the third quarter. During the slack period, our Company undertakes cleaning, maintenance and revamping of its ponds and other infrastructural facilities due to which our Company is able to produce better quality of prawns by exposing the prawns to a better environment and preventing them from associated diseases. However, seasonal nature of our business may have significant adverse impact on our cash flows and business operations. Accordingly, investors should consider our business and prospects in light of the risks, losses and challenges of aquaculture that we face and should not rely on our results of operations for any prior periods as an indication of our future performance. 5. Our entire production facility is located in the state of Gujarat. Further we generate our major sales from our operations in certain geographical regions especially Gujarat and Maharashtra. Any adverse developments affecting our operations in these regions could have an adverse impact on our revenue and results of operations. Our Company currently carries on its aquaculture activities only in the state of Gujarat. Further our major customer base is concentrated in certain regions in the state of Gujarat and Maharashtra. Such geographical concentration of our aquaculture business in these regions heightens our exposure to adverse developments related to competition, as well as economic and demographic changes in these regions which may adversely affect our business prospects, financial conditions and results of operations. We may not be able to leverage our experience in regions of Gujarat & Maharashtra to expand our operations in other parts of India and overseas markets, particularly as the Company plans to foray into processing of shrimps which shall open avenues to international markets for the Company and further expand its operations. Factors such as competition, culture, regulatory regimes, business practices and customs, industry needs, transportation, in other markets where we may expand our operations may differ from those in Gujarat & Maharashtra, and our experience in these places may not be applicable to other markets. In addition, as we enter new markets and geographical areas, we are likely to compete not only with national and international players, but also local players who might have an established local presence, are more familiar with local regulations, business practices and industry needs, have stronger relationships with local contractors, farmers, relevant government authorities, and who are in a stronger financial position than us, all of which may give them a competitive advantage over us. Our inability to expand into areas outside our present market may adversely affect our business prospects, financial conditions and results of operations. While our management believes that the Company has requisite expertise and vision to grow and mark its presence in other markets going forward, investors should consider our business and prospects in light of the risks, losses and challenges faced by us and should not rely on our results of operations for any prior periods as an indication of our future performance. 6. We operate in an environment sensitive industry. The shrimps we produce may be prone to certain diseases spread in the environment. Our Company is majorly into farming of shrimps. One of the species of shrimps called Black Tiger produced by us is quite vulnerable to diseases especially the White Spot Disease. In view of our management, the introduction of specific pathogen free Vannamei species has improved the prospects of the shrimp industry. Vannamei species was introduced after host of trials and the brood stock is quarantined in Chennai before their release to hatcheries for farming. These being a specific pathogen free species, the incidence of diseases are expected to be low. Further the Costal Aqua Culture Authority conducts frequent checks to ensure the bio security requirements are followed. However, if we are unsuccessful in controlling these risks, our business may be materially and

18 Page 17 of 370 Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus adversely affected. Accordingly, investors should consider our business and prospects in light of the risks, losses and challenges of aquaculture that we face and should not rely on our results of operations for any prior periods as an indication of our future performance. 7. We do not possess any control on the biosecurity measures employed at different level of operations. Improper measures may lead to risk of development of new infections/ diseases. Biosecurity can be defined as the set of procedures undertaken to prevent, control and eradicate infectious diseases in organisms. Although we have good management practices and a biosecurity program in place, there may be possibility of lack of biosecurity measures at our farms under collaboration agreements as also at farms under satellite farming. This may develop the risk of new diseases among the shrimps. If we are unsuccessful in controlling these risks, our business may be materially and adversely affected. Accordingly, investors should consider our business and prospects in light of the risks, losses and challenges of aquaculture that we face and should not rely on our results of operations for any prior periods as an indication of our future performance. 8. We are hugely dependent on a single supplier for supply of one of our important raw materials i.e. feeds. Further, our supplier is also engaged in the same business segment i.e. processing and exporting of shrimps in which we propose to enter. We are an Authorised Dealers for Avanti Feeds Limited and are hugely dependent on them for supply of our one of the important raw material i.e. feeds. Avanti Feeds Limited is a well-established player in the aquaculture industry. They are engaged in manufacturing of Prawn and Fish Feeds as well as processing and export of shrimps. With our entry into the processing industry, we may pose direct competition to processing business of Avanti Feeds Limited, consequent to which Avanti Feeds Limited may modify the terms and conditions of our existing business relationships. Any unfavourable outcome may affect our business and results of operations. 9. Our top ten customers contribute approximately 71% of our revenues for the year ended March 31, Any loss of business from one or more of the them may adversely affect our revenues or profitabilities Our top ten customers contribute approximately 71% of our revenue for the financial year ended March 31, Any decline in our quality standards, growing competition and any change in demands may adversely affect our ability to retain them. We cannot assure that we shall generate the same quantum of business or any business at all from these customers, and loss of business from one or more of them may adversely affect our revenue and profitability. However, the composition and revenue generated from these customers might change as we continue to add new customers in normal course of business. We intend to retain our customers by adhering to strict quality standards by providing better value to each customers and thereby increasing our engagement with new and existing customer base that presents a substantial opportunity for growth. 10. Our Company does not own any warehouses for storage of shrimps. We do not own any warehouses i.e. cold storage facilities for storage of shrimps. Shrimps being a perishable commodity, absence of storage facilities may lead to spoilage risk. Currently, the customer arranges for the transportation and storage facilities. In case there is delay on part of the customer to collect the shrimps produced or there is a cancellation of the sales order, our profitability may be adversely affected due to risk of spoilage of shrimps. However, our Company is in the process of setting up of a processing unit for storage of shrimps which shall include cold storage facilities. But, in case our Company would be unable to set up processing plant, our business operations and financial results could have significant adverse impact. 11. We are subject to risks arising from exchange rate fluctuations. Our major sales are made to the processing houses of shrimps who in turn export these shrimps. Since the end use of our products is in international markets, the fluctuation in exchange rate between the Rupee and other currencies may affect the sales price which we are able to fetch. Further after setting up our own processing unit, we shall directly cater to international markets which shall yield foreign earnings for us. Since, the exchange rate between the Rupee and other currencies is variable and may continue to fluctuate in future, such fluctuations may affect the cost of

19 goods rendered in foreign currency terms. Any adverse fluctuations with respect to the exchange rate of any foreign currency for Indian Rupees may affect the Company s profitability and results of operations. 12. We do business with our customers on purchase order basis and do not have long-term contracts with most of them. Our business is conducted on purchase order basis which in turn is dependent on global requirements for shrimps. We do not have long-term contracts with most of our customers and there can be no assurance that we will continue to receive repeat orders from any of them. Further, even if we were to continue receiving orders from our customers, there can be no assurance that they will be on the same terms, and the new terms may be less favorable to us than those under the present terms. Our management attempts to ensure customer satisfaction and continuing repeat orders from them endorse our attempts. 13. Increased raw material, labour and other costs, may adversely affect our results of operation and feasibility of our development plan. As there is a significant amount of farming activity in our development plan, our business would be affected by the availability, cost and quality of raw materials and labour. The prices and supply of raw materials and labour depend on factors not under our control, including general economic conditions, competition, production levels, transportation costs and import duties. Additionally, inflation would play a critical role in the cost of farming, and could directly impact the profitability of the development and the peak funding requirements. We cannot assure you that we will be able to procure quality raw materials at competitive prices or at all which may adversely affect our business. In addition, during periods of significant increases in the price of seeds, feeds or probiotics, we may not be able to pass price increases through to our customers, which could reduce or eliminate our profits with respect to such development. Our principal raw materials include seeds, feeds and probiotics. Any increase in the costs of our principal raw materials may adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operation. 14. We are planning to set-up a processing unit for shrimps which shall be a new line of business for us. Our Company is in the process of setting up of a processing unit for storage and further processing of harvested shrimps. We may face initial difficulties such as technical glitches, resource crunch, operations mismanagement, etc. in the process of setting up the processing unit. We may also face competition from the established processors. Further we do not have an identified international customer base and shall also have to develop a market for the sales of processed shrimps. All these factors may result in slow growth over the initial years of development and affect the profitability of the company. 15. Conflicts of interest may arise out of common business undertaken by our Company and our Group Entities. Our Group Entities are authorized to carry out business similar to that of our Company. As a result, conflicts of interests may arise in allocating business opportunities amongst our Company and our Group Entities in circumstances where our respective interests diverge. In cases of conflict, our Promoter may favour other companies in which our Promoter has interests. There can be no assurance that our Promoter or our Group Entities or members of the Promoter Group will not compete with our existing business or any future business that we may undertake or that their interests will not conflict with ours. Any such present and future conflicts could have a material adverse effect on our reputation, business, results of operations and financial conditions. For further details of business activities of our Group Entities, please refer to the chapter titled Our Group Entities beginning on page 161 of the Draft Prospectus. 16. Our Company is dependent on third party transportation providers for the delivery of raw materials and sales of shrimps and any disruption in their operations or a decrease in the quality of their services could affect our Company's reputation and results of operations. Page 18 of 370

20 Page 19 of 370 Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus Our Company uses third party transportation providers for delivery of our raw materials and sales of shrimps. Though our business has not experienced any disruptions due to transportation strikes in the past, any future transportation strikes may have an adverse effect on our business. These transportation facilities may not be adequate to support our existing and future operations. In addition raw materials or shrimps may be lost or damaged in transit for various reasons including occurrence of accidents or natural disasters. There may also be delay in receipt of raw materials which may also affect our business and results of operation negatively. Also since shrimps are perishable commodity, delay in delivery of shrimps may result in huge losses. An increase in the freight costs or unavailability of freight for transportation of our raw materials may have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations. Further, disruptions of transportation services due to weather-related problems, strikes, lock-outs, inadequacies in the road infrastructure and port facilities, or other events could impair ability to procure raw materials and shrimps on time. Any such disruptions could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. 17. Our Company faces competition in its business from other aquaculture players. The aquaculture industry in India, while fragmented and unorganised, is highly competitive and our Company faces competition from other aquaculture players. The industry is dominated by host of regional players. There are a number of competitors having better financials and other resources who have achieved greater market penetration than our Company has, in the markets in which it competes. Our Company experience competition in the future from potential competitors with significant operations elsewhere in India. This may affect our relative market share and results from operations. 18. We do not own the lands on which our business activities are being carried on. Currently, our Company has entered into various collaboration agreements with third parties for usage of lands owned by these parties against specified consideration. These collaboration agreements are subject to renewal after the agreed period of time, which is generally for 5 years. In case of any unfavorable changes in the terms and conditions of the agreement, any unexpected cancellations of the agreement, inability on the part of the Company to renew the collaboration agreements may affect our results of operations. Further these lands are also not in the name of third parties but allotted to them by Government subject to certain terms and conditions for a specified period. Thus any failure on the part of third parties to fulfil the terms and conditions leading to revocation of land agreement, any change in the government policies with respect to allotment of the land or inability of the third party to renew land agreement post the specified period, might directly impact the scale of operations of our Company. 19. Certain agreements may not be formalised or inadequately stamped or may not have been registered as a result of which our operations may be impaired. We have not formalised certain collaboration agreements with some of the third parties. Further, some of our partnership deeds are not traceable. Also, few of our agreements may not be adequately stamped or registered. The effect of informal agreements, inadequate stamping is that the document is not admissible as evidence in legal proceedings and parties to that agreement may not be able to legally enforce the same, except formalizing the agreement or after paying a penalty for inadequate stamping. Our Company has already initiated the process of formalising the collaboration agreements and is making its best efforts to retrieve the partnership deeds. 20. We do not own the premises at which our Registered Office is located. We do not own the premises at which our Registered Office is situated. We have taken the premises where our registered office is located on lease from GIDC. The lease is valid for a period of 99 years, with an option to renew the same for a further period of 99 years. However, our lease deed imposes certain restrictions and covenants, breach of which may lead to termination of deed, thereby adversely affecting our operations. 21. Certain of our Group entities, have incurred losses during the recent Fiscal year. The following group entities have incurred losses in recent Fiscal years:- (in lakhs)

Our Company is yet to establish its marketing set up across the country and in international markets. At present major activity and market share of our Company is concentrated in the state of Gujarat. The marketing setup of our Company will gradually expand to other states of our country. With the setting up of the processing unit, our company needs to build distribution networks across international markets as well. Our Company may need to incur marketing expenses to establish its business in new markets. Marketing costs and development of market set-ups across new channels, might affect our Company s expansion plans and profitability. 23. Increasing thrust on R&D/technology increasing costs. The aquaculture industry is sensitive to environment and our Company is dependent on the healthy catch of shrimp. After introduction of the new species namely Vannamei, and the advancements made in shrimp rearing and feeding technologies, the occurrence of diseases has decreased considerably. However, the industry is prone to environmental changes. The Company has to constantly upgrade its technologies and its products in order to minimize its dependence on environmental factors. Our company has an in-built research team to constantly test and monitor its operations. Our management believes in technological advancement of the business operations which is evidenced by the installations of Auto-feeder systems, Auto PH level testers among others. Our Company makes constant and conscious efforts to match the pace of technological advancements with the business requirements 24. We have not applied for certain statutory and regulatory approvals, registrations and licenses. Further, our inability to renew or maintain our statutory and regulatory permits and approvals required to operate our business would adversely affect our operations and profitability. Our Company requires several statutory and regulatory permits, licenses and approvals to operate the business. Many of these approvals are granted for fixed periods of time and need renewal from time to time. Our Company is required to renew such permits, licenses and approvals. There can be no assurance that the relevant authorities will issue any of such permits or approvals in time or at all. Further, these permits, licenses and approvals are subject to several conditions, and our Company cannot assure that it shall be able to continuously meet such conditions or be able to prove compliance with such conditions to statutory authorities, and this may lead to cancellation, revocation or suspension of relevant permits/ licenses/ approvals. Our Company may not have obtained certain statutory and regulatory approvals, registrations and licenses such as including contract labour related registrations, government pollution control board. This could be due to our applications in process or due to lack in clarity to our Company on applicability of such registrations. However, such non-compliance may result in proceedings against our Company and the Directors and such actions may directly and immediately affect our operations. For details please refer to chapter titled Government and Other Statutory Approvals beginning on page 241 of this Draft Prospectus. 25. Compliance with, and changes in, safety, health and environmental laws and various labour, workplace and related laws and regulations impose additional costs and may increase our compliance costs and as such adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition.

22 We are subject to a broad range of safety, health and environmental laws and various labour, workplace and related laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate, which impose controls on the disposal and storage of raw materials, noise emissions, air and water discharges, on the storage, handling, discharge and disposal of chemicals, employee exposure to hazardous substances and other aspects of our operations. Compliance with, and changes in these laws may increase our compliance costs and as such adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition. Shrimp farming is subject to extensive local, state and central laws and regulations that govern the acquisition, and development of plot, including laws and regulations related to zoning, permitted land uses, proportion and use of open spaces, fire safety standards, access to water and other utilities, and water and waste disposal. In addition, we and our subcontractors are subject to laws and regulations relating to, among other things, environmental approvals in respect of the project, minimum wages, working hours, health and safety of labourers and requirements of registration for contract labour. 26. Our Company has unsecured loans which are repayable on demand. Any demand from lenders for repayment of such unsecured loans, may adversely affect our cash flows. As on December 31, 2014 our Company has unsecured loans amounting to Rs lakhs from our Directors, shareholders, etc. which are repayable on demand. Such loans are not repayable in accordance with any agreed repayment schedule and may be recalled by the relevant lenders at any time. Any such unexpected demand or accelerated repayment may have a material adverse effect on our business, cash flows and financial conditions. For further details of unsecured loans of our Company, please refer Annexure XI-Statement of Unsecured Loans of chapter titled Financial Statements as Restated beginning on page 173 under the chapter Auditors Report and Financial Information of Our Company of the Draft Prospectus. 27. Our Company has negative cash flow in the past 3 years details of which are given below; Sustained negative cash flow could impact our growth and business. Cash flow of a company is a key indicator to show the extent of cash generated from operations to meet capital expenditure, pay dividends and make new investments without raising finance from external resources. Our Company has negative cash flows from investing and financing activities in the past. Particulars Cash Flow used in Investing Activities Cash Flow from / (used in) Financing Activities March 31, 2012 March 31, 2013 March 31, 2014 (Rs in Lakhs) For the period ended December 31, 2014 (589.98) (326.73) (346.72) (518.30) (320.95) (969.97) (406.36) If we are not able to generate sufficient cash flows in future, it may adversely affect our business and financial operations. 28.

Our Company has entered into certain transactions with our related parties including our Promoter, the Promoter Group, Group Companies, our Directors and their relatives. While we believe that all such transactions have been conducted on the arm s length basis, there can be no assurance that we could not have achieved more favourable terms had such transactions not been entered into with related parties. Furthermore, it is likely that we will enter into related party transactions in the future. There can be no assurance that such transactions, individually or in the aggregate, will not have an adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operation. For details on the transactions entered by us, please refer to Annexure XVII - Related Party Transactions in Section Financial Statements beginning on page 173 of this Draft Prospectus. 31. Our lenders have imposed certain restrictive conditions on us under our financing arrangements. Under our financing arrangements, we are required to obtain the prior, written lender consent for, among other matters, changes in our capital structure, formulate a scheme of amalgamation or reconstruction and entering into any other borrowing arrangement. Further, we are required to maintain certain financial ratios. There can be no assurance that we will be able to comply with these financial or other covenants or that we will be able to obtain the consents necessary to take the actions we believe are necessary to operate and grow our business. Our level of existing debt and any new debt that we incur in the future has important consequences. Any failure to comply with these requirements or other conditions or covenants under our financing agreements that is not waived by our lenders or is not otherwise cured by us, may require us to repay the borrowing in whole or part and may include other related costs. Our Company may be forced to sell some or all of its assets or limit our operations. This may adversely affect our ability to conduct our business and impair our future growth plans. For further information, see the chapter titled Financial Indebtedness on page 220 of this Draft Prospectus.

24 32. Our Promoter and members of the Promoter Group have provided personal guarantees to certain loan facilities availed by us, which if revoked may require alternative guarantees, repayment of amounts due or termination of the facilities. Our Promoter and members of the Promoter Group have provided personal guarantees in relation to certain loan facilities availed of by us. In the event that any of these guarantees are revoked, the lenders for such facilities may require alternate guarantees, repayment of amounts outstanding under such facilities, or may even terminate such facilities. We may not be successful in procuring alternative guarantees satisfactory to the lenders, and as a result may need to repay outstanding amounts under such facilities or seek additional sources of capital, which may not be available on acceptable terms or at all and any such failure to raise additional capital could affect our operations and our financial condition. 33. Our insurance coverage may not be adequate. Our Company has obtained insurance coverage in respect of certain risks. Our significant insurance policies consist of, among others, standard fire and special perils, earthquake (fire and shock), etc. While we believe that we maintain insurance coverage in adequate amounts consistent with size of our business, our insurance policies do not cover all risks, specifically risks like product defect/liability risk, loss of profits, losses due to terrorism (except as provided in the marine cargo insurance). There can be no assurance that our insurance policies will be adequate to cover the losses in respect of which the insurance has been availed. If we suffer a significant uninsured loss or if insurance claim in respect of the subject-matter of insurance is not accepted or any insured loss suffered by us significantly exceeds our insurance coverage, our business, financial condition and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected. Further our Company has recently acquired a new property for managing water facilities with respect to the proposed processing unit. The Company is yet to take insurance for this property. For further details, please refer chapter titled Our Business beginning on page 110 of this Draft Prospectus. 34. Our success depends largely upon the services of our Directors and other Key Managerial Personnel and our ability to attract and retain them. Demand for Key Managerial Personnel in the industry is intense and our inability to attract and retain Key Managerial Personnel may affect the operations of our Company. Our Directors, Mr. Pradeep Navik, Mr. Shantilal Patel and Mr. Rohan Navik have built relations with clients and other persons who are connected with us. Our success is substantially dependent on the expertise and services of our Directors and our Key Managerial Personnel. They provide expertise which enables us to make well informed decisions in relation to our business and our future prospects. Our future performance will depend upon the continued services of these persons. Demand for Key Managerial Personnel in the aquaculture industry is intense. We cannot assure you that we will be able to retain any or all, or that our succession planning will help to replace, the key members of our management. The loss of the services of such key members of our management team and the failure of any succession plans to replace such key members could have an adverse effect on our business and the results of our operations. 35. Our Promoter and Directors may have interest in our Company, other than reimbursement of expenses incurred or remuneration. Our Promoter and Directors may be deemed to be interested to the extent of the Equity Shares held by them, or their relatives or loans advanced and personal guarantee s provided by them to/for the Company, and benefits deriving from their directorship in our Company. Also our Company has entered into collaboration agreements with many partnership firms wherein our Promoters are interested as partners. Our Promoters are interested in the transactions entered into between our Company and themselves as well as between our Company and our Group Entities. For further details, please refer to the chapters titled Our Business and Our Promoter and Promoter Group, beginning on page 110 and 155, respectively and Related Party Transactions beginning on page 171 of this Draft Prospectus.

25 36. We utilize independent contractors to provide labour, upon whom we do not have direct control, to provide labourers. We contract with independent contractors for the need of manpower of our projects. If a contractor fails to perform its obligations satisfactorily or within the prescribed time periods with regard to a project, we may be unable to culture the shrimps within the intended timeframe, at the intended cost, or at all. If this occurs, we may be required to incur additional cost or time to develop the shrimps to appropriate quality standards in a manner consistent with our development objective, which could result in reduced profits or in some cases, significant penalties and losses. We cannot assure you that the services rendered by any of our independent contractors will always be satisfactory or match our requirements for quality. 37. Labour unrest problems and shortage of skilled/unskilled labour may significantly affect our business and if our employees unionize, we may be subject to, slowdowns and increased wage costs. We believe that the aquaculture industry in India is currently experiencing a shortage of skilled/unskilled labour. As a consequence, we face competitive pressures in recruiting and retaining engineers as well as other skilled labour, professionally qualified staff and other unskilled labour as and when we need them. We believe that we currently pay salaries at market rate in order to secure an adequate number of personnel; however, we may in the future need to pay remuneration that is above market rates which could result in lower profit margins for us. Further, there can be no assurance that increased salaries will result in a lower rate of attrition. The loss of the services of our personnel or our inability to recruit or train a sufficient number of experienced personnel or our inability to manage the attrition levels in different employee categories may have an adverse effect on our financial results and business prospects. In addition, India has stringent labour legislation that protects the interests of workers, including legislation that sets forth detailed procedures for the establishment of unions, dispute resolution and employee removal and legislation that imposes certain financial obligations on employers upon retrenchment. Although our employees are not currently unionized, there can be no assurance that they will not unionize in the future. If our employees unionize, it may become difficult for us to maintain flexible labour policies, and our business may be adversely affected. 38. We could be harmed by employee misconduct or errors that are difficult to detect and any such incidences could adversely affect our financial condition, results of operations and reputation. Employee misconduct or errors could expose us to business risks or losses, including regulatory sanctions and serious harm to our reputation. There can be no assurance that we will be able to detect or deter such misconduct. Moreover, the precautions we take to prevent and detect such activity may not be effective in all cases. Our employees and agents may also commit errors that could subject us to claims and proceedings for alleged negligence, as well as regulatory actions on account of which our business, financial condition, results of operations and goodwill could be adversely affected. 39. Our Promoters and members of the Promoter Group will continue jointly to retain majority control over our Company after the Issue, which will allow them to determine the outcome of matters submitted to shareholders for approval. Post this Issue, our Promoters and Promoter Group will collectively own 68.42% of our equity share capital. As a result, our Promoters, together with the members of the Promoter Group, will continue to exercise a significant degree of influence over Company and will be able to control the outcome of any proposal that can be approved by a majority shareholder vote, including, the election of members to our Board, in accordance with the Companies Act, 2013 and our Articles of Association. Such a concentration of ownership may also have the effect of delaying, preventing or deterring a change in control of our Company. In addition, our Promoters will continue to have the ability to cause us to take actions that are not in, or may conflict with, our interests or the interests of some or all of our creditors or other shareholders, and we cannot assure you that such actions will not have an adverse effect on our future financial performance or the price of our Equity Shares.

26 40. Our future funds requirements, in the form of fresh issue of capital or securities and/or loans taken by us, may be prejudicial to the interest of the shareholders depending upon the terms on which they are eventually raised. We may require additional capital from time to time depending on our business needs. Any fresh issue of shares or convertible securities would dilute the shareholding of the existing shareholders and such issuance may be done on terms and conditions, which may not be favorable to the then existing shareholders. If such funds are raised in the form of loans or debt, then it may substantially increase our interest burden and decrease our cash flows, thus prejudicially affecting our profitability and ability to pay dividends to our shareholders. 41. Our ability to pay dividends will depend upon future earnings, financial condition, cash flows, working capital requirements, capital expenditures and other factors. The amount of our future dividend payments, if any, will depend upon various factors such as our future earnings, financial condition, cash flows, working capital requirements, capital expenditures and other factors. There can be no assurance that we shall have distributable funds or that we will declare dividends in the future. Additionally, the terms of any financing we obtain in the future, may contain restrictive covenants which may also affect some of the rights of our shareholders, including the payment of the dividend. 42. Delay in raising funds from the IPO could adversely impact the implementation schedule and affect our ability to execute the expansion project within the given time frame, thus impeding our growth plans and profitability The expansion of our proposed project is to be funded from the proceeds of the IPO and internal accruals. We have not identified any alternate source of funding and hence any failure or delay on our part to mobilize the required resources or any shortfall in the Net Proceeds may delay the implementation schedule. We therefore, cannot assure that we would be able to execute the expansion project within the given time frame, or within the costs as originally estimated by us. Any time overrun or cost overrun may adversely affect our growth plans and profitability. 43. Within the parameters as mentioned in the chapter titled Objects of this Issue beginning on page 76 of this Draft Prospectus, our Company s management will have flexibility in applying the proceeds of this Issue. The fund requirement and deployment mentioned in the Objects of this Issue have not been appraised by any bank or financial institution. We intend to use entire fresh Issue Proceeds towards working capital needs, general corporate purposes and to meet the issue expenses. We intend to deploy the Net Issue Proceeds in financial year and such deployment is based on certain assumptions and strategy which our Company believes to implement in future. The funds raised from the fresh Issue may remain idle on account of change in assumptions, market conditions, strategy of our Company, etc., For further details on the use of the Issue Proceeds, please refer chapter titled "Objects of the Issue" beginning on page 76 of this Draft Prospectus. The deployment of funds for the purposes described above is at the discretion of our Company s Board of Directors. The fund requirement and deployment is based on internal management estimates and has not been appraised by any bank or financial institution. Accordingly, within the parameters as mentioned in the chapter titled Objects of the Issue beginning on page 76 of this Draft Prospectus, the Management will have significant flexibility in applying the proceeds received by our Company from the Issue. Our Board of Directors will monitor the utilisation of the proceeds of this Issue. Page 25 of 370

Our Company has issued 11,50,200 Bonus Equity Shares in the last twelve months. For further details of Equity Shares issued, please refer to chapter titled, Capital Structure beginning on page 56 of this Draft Prospectus. 45. Sale of Equity Shares by our Promoter or other significant shareholder(s) may adversely affect the trading price of the Equity Shares. Any instance of disinvestments of equity shares by our Promoter or by other significant shareholder(s) may significantly affect the trading price of our Equity Shares. Further, our market price may also be adversely affected even if there is a perception or belief that such sales of Equity Shares might occur. 46. There are restrictions on daily movements in the price of the Equity Shares, which may adversely affect a shareholder s ability to sell, or the price at which it can sell, Equity Shares at a particular point in time. Once listed, we would be subject to circuit breakers imposed by all stock exchanges in India, which does not allow transactions beyond specified increases or decreases in the price of the Equity Shares. This circuit breaker operates independently of the index-based market-wide circuit breakers generally imposed by SEBI on Indian stock exchanges. The percentage limit on circuit breakers is set by the stock exchanges based on the historical volatility in the price and trading volume of the Equity Shares. The stock exchanges do not inform us of the percentage limit of the circuit breaker in effect from time to time, and may change it without our knowledge. This circuit breaker limits the upward and downward movements in the price of the Equity Shares. As a result of this circuit breaker, no assurance may be given regarding your ability to sell your Equity Shares or the price at which you may be able to sell your Equity Shares at any particular time. 47. After this Issue, the price of the Equity Shares may be highly volatile, or an active trading market for the Equity Shares may not develop. The price of the Equity Shares on the Stock Exchanges may fluctuate as a result of the factors, including: a. Volatility in the Indian and global capital market; b. Company s results of operations and financial performance; c. Performance of Company s competitors; d. Adverse media reports on the Company or pertaining to the aquaculture industry; e. Changes in our estimates of performance or recommendations by financial analysts; f. Significant developments in India s economic and fiscal policies; Current valuations may not be sustainable in the future and may also not be reflective of future valuations for our industry and our Company. There has been no public market for the Equity Shares and the prices of the Equity Shares may fluctuate after this Issue. There can be no assurance that an active trading market for the Equity Shares will develop or be sustained after this Issue or that the price at which the Equity Shares are initially traded will correspond to the price at which the Equity Shares will trade in the market subsequent to this Issue. 48. The Issue price of our Equity Shares may not be indicative of the market price of our Equity Shares after the Issue and the market price of our Equity Shares may decline below the issue price and you may not be able to sell your Equity Shares at or above the Issue Price. The Issue Price of our Equity Shares is based on numerous factors (For further information, please refer chapter titled Basis for Issue Price beginning on page 82 of this Draft Prospectus) and may not be indicative of the market price of our Equity Shares after the Issue. The market price of our Equity Shares could be subject to significant fluctuations after the Issue, and may decline below the

28 Issue Price. We cannot assure you that you will be able to sell your Equity Shares at or above the Issue Price. Among the factors that could affect our share price include without limitation, the following: Half yearly variations in the rate of growth of our financial indicators, such as earnings per share, net income and revenues; Changes in revenue or earnings estimates or publication of research reports by analysts; Speculation in the press or investment community; General market conditions; and Domestic and international economic, legal and regulatory factors unrelated to our performance. 49. You will not be able to sell immediately on Indian Stock Exchanges any of the Equity Shares you purchase in the Issue until the Issue receives appropriate trading permissions. The Equity Shares will be listed on the Stock Exchange. Pursuant to Indian regulations, certain actions must be completed before the Equity Shares can be listed and trading may commence. We cannot assure you that the Equity Shares will be credited to investor s demat accounts, or that trading in the Equity Shares will commence, within the time periods specified in this Draft Prospectus. Any failure or delay in obtaining the approval would restrict your ability to dispose of the Equity Shares. In accordance with section 40 of the New Companies Act, in the event that the permission of listing the Equity Shares is denied by the stock exchanges, we are required to refund all monies collected to investors EXTERNAL RISK FACTORS 50. The Aquaculture industry is subject to significant regulations. The aquaculture industry is subject to extensive laws and regulations imposed by government authorities including the Ministry of Environment, the State Pollution Control Boards, environmental laws and regulations relating to Air and Water Control, Waste Disposal etc. Possible future developments, including the promulgation of more stringent environmental laws and regulations and timing of the future enforcement proceedings that may be taken by environment authorities could affect the costs and the manner in which the Company conducts its business and could also result in substantial capital expenditure. In addition, the Company s licenses and permits are subject to renewal. While the Company anticipates that renewals will be given as and when sought, there is no assurance that such renewals will be given as a matter of course and there is no assurance that new conditions will not be imposed in connection therewith. Environmental laws and regulations require the Company to incur certain costs, which could be substantial, to operate existing facilities, construct and operate new facilities, and mitigate or remove the effect of past operations on the environment. Governmental regulations establishing environmental protection standards are continually evolving, and, therefore, the character, scope, cost and availability of the measures that may be required to be taken to ensure compliance with evolving laws or regulations cannot be predicted. To the extent that environmental liabilities are greater than the Company s insurance coverage and the Company is unsuccessful in recovering anticipated insurance proceeds under the relevant policies, the results of operations and financial condition could be materially and adversely affected. 51. Political, economic or other factors that are beyond our control may have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations. The following external risks may have an adverse impact on our business and results of operations should any of them materialize: Page 27 of 370

29 Page 28 of 370 Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus A change in the central or Gujarat state government or a change in the economic and deregulation policies could adversely affect economic conditions prevalent in the areas in which we operate in general and our business in particular; High rates of inflation in India could increase our costs without proportionately increasing our revenues, and as such decrease our operating margins; and A slowdown in economic growth or financial instability in India could adversely affect our business and results of operations. Civil unrest, acts of violence, terrorists attacks, regional conflicts or situations or war involving India or other countries could materially and adversely affect the financial markets which could impact our business. Such incidents could impact economic growth or create a perception that investment in Indian companies could involve higher degree in risk which could reduce the value of the equity shares. National disasters in India may disrupt or adversely affect the Indian economy which in turn may affect the health of our business Any downgrading of Indian Sovereignty rating by international credit rating agencies may negatively impact our business and access to capital 52. The Companies Act, 2013 has effected significant changes to the existing Indian company law framework, which may subject us to higher compliance requirements and increase our compliance costs. A majority of the provisions and rules under the Companies Act, 2013 have recently been notified and have come into effect from the date of their respective notification, resulting in the corresponding provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 ceasing to have effect. The Companies Act, 2013 has brought into effect significant changes to the Indian company law framework, such as in the provisions related to issue of capital, disclosures in Draft Prospectus, corporate governance norms, audit matters, related party transactions, introduction of a provision allowing the initiation of class action suits in India against companies by shareholders or depositors, a restriction on investment by an Indian company through more than two layers of subsidiary investment companies (subject to certain permitted exceptions), prohibitions on loans to directors and insider trading and restrictions on directors and key managerial personnel from engaging in forward dealing. To ensure compliance with the requirements of the Companies Act, 2013, we may need to allocate additional resources, which may increase our regulatory compliance costs and divert management attention. The Companies Act, 2013 introduced certain additional requirements which do not have corresponding equivalents under the Companies Act, Accordingly, we may face challenges in interpreting and complying with such provisions due to limited jurisprudence on them. In the event, our interpretation of such provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 differs from, or contradicts with, any judicial pronouncements or clarifications issued by the Government in the future, we may face regulatory actions or we may be required to undertake remedial steps. We may face difficulties in complying with any such overlapping requirements. Further, we cannot currently determine the impact of provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 which are yet to come in force. Any increase in our compliance requirements or in our compliance costs may have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations. 53. Significant differences exist between Indian GAAP and other accounting principles, such as U.S. GAAP and IFRS, which may be material to the financial statements prepared and presented in accordance with SEBI ICDR Regulations contained in this Draft Prospectus. The Financial Statements beginning from page 173 included in this Draft Prospectus are based on the audited financial statements that are prepared and presented in conformity with Indian GAAP and restated in accordance with the SEBI ICDR Regulations, and no attempt has been made to reconcile any of the information given in this Draft Prospectus to any other principles or to base it on any other standards. Indian GAAP differs from accounting principles and auditing standards with which prospective investors may be familiar in other countries, such as U.S. GAAP and IFRS. Significant differences exist between Indian GAAP and U.S. GAAP and IFRS, which may be material to the

30 financial information prepared and presented in accordance with Indian GAAP contained in this Draft Prospectus. Accordingly, the degree to which the financial information included in this Draft Prospectus will provide meaningful information is dependent on familiarity with Indian GAAP, the Companies Act and the SEBI ICDR Regulations. Any reliance by persons not familiar with Indian GAAP on the financial disclosures presented in this Draft Prospectus should accordingly be limited. 54. The nationalized goods and services tax ( GST) regimes proposed by the Government of India may have material impact on our operations The Government of India has propose a comprehensive national goods and service tax (GST) regime that will combine taxes and levies by the Central and State Governments into a unified rate structure. Given the limited liability of information in the public domain covering the GST we are unable to provide/ measure the impact this tax regime may have on our operations. 55. You may be subject to Indian taxes arising out of capital gains on the sale of the Equity Shares. Under current Indian tax laws and regulations, capital gains arising from the sale of equity shares in an Indian company are generally taxable in India. Any gain realised on the sale of shares on a stock exchange held for more than 12 months will not be subject to capital gains tax in India if the securities transaction tax ( STT ) has been paid on the transaction. The STT will be levied on and collected by an Indian stock exchange on which equity shares are sold. Any gain realised on the sale of shares held for more than 12 months to an Indian resident, which are sold other than on a recognised stock exchange and as a result of which no STT has been paid, will be subject to long term capital gains tax in India. Further, any gain realised on the sale of shares held for a period of 12 months or less will be subject to capital gains tax in India. Further, any gain realised on the sale of listed equity shares held for a period of 12 months or less which are sold other than on a recognised stock exchange and on which no STT has been paid, will be subject to short term capital gains tax at a relatively higher rate as compared to the transaction where STT has been paid in India. 56. We cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of facts and other statistics with respect to India, the Indian economy and the aquaculture sector contained in the Draft Prospectus. While facts and other statistics in the Draft Prospectus relating to India, the Indian economy and the aquaculture sector has been based on various government publications and reports from government agencies that we believe are reliable, we cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of such materials. While we have taken reasonable care in the reproduction of such information, industry facts and other statistics have not been prepared or independently verified by us or any of our respective affiliates or advisors and, therefore we make no representation as to their accuracy or completeness. These facts and other statistics include the facts and statistics included in the chapter titled Our Industry beginning on page 93 of the Draft Prospectus. Due to possibly flawed or ineffective data collection methods or discrepancies between published information and market practice and other problems, the statistics herein may be inaccurate or may not be comparable to statistics produced elsewhere and should not be unduly relied upon. Further, there is no assurance that they are stated or compiled on the same basis or with the same degree of accuracy, as the case may be, elsewhere. 57. Conditions in the Indian securities market may affect the price or liquidity of our Equity Shares. The Indian securities markets are smaller than securities markets in more developed economies and the regulation and monitoring of Indian securities markets and the activities of investors, brokers and other participants differ, in some cases significantly, from those in the more developed economies. Indian stock exchanges have in the past experienced substantial fluctuations in the prices of listed securities. Further, the Indian stock exchanges have experienced volatility in the recent times. The Indian stock exchanges have also experienced problems that have affected the market price and liquidity of the securities of Indian companies, such as temporary exchange closures, broker defaults, settlement delays and strikes by brokers. In addition, the governing bodies of the Indian stock exchanges have from time to time restricted securities from trading and limited price movements. A closure of, or trading stoppage on the BSE could adversely affect the trading price of the Equity Shares. Page 29 of 370

31 58. There is no guarantee that the Equity Shares issued pursuant to the Issue will be listed on the SME Platform of BSE in a timely manner, or at all. In accordance with Indian law and practice, permission for listing and trading of the Equity Shares issued pursuant to the Issue will not be granted until after the Equity Shares have been issued and allotted. Approval for listing and trading will require all relevant documents authorizing the issuing of Equity Shares to be submitted. There could be a failure or delay in listing the Equity Shares on the SME Platform of BSE. Any failure or delay in obtaining the approval would restrict your ability to dispose of your Equity Shares. 59. Natural calamities could have a negative impact on the Indian economy and cause Our Company's business to suffer. India has experienced natural calamities such as earthquakes, tsunami, floods etc. in recent years. The extent and severity of these natural disasters determine their impact on the Indian economy. Prolonged spells of abnormal rainfall or other natural calamities could have a negative impact on the Indian economy, which could adversely affect our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operation as well as the price of the Equity Shares. 60. Terrorist attacks, civil unrests and other acts of violence or war involving India or other countries could adversely affect the financial markets, our business, financial condition and the price of our Equity Shares. Any major hostilities involving India or other acts of violence, including civil unrest or similar events that are beyond our control, could have a material adverse effect on India s economy and our business. Incidents such as the terrorist attacks, other incidents such as those in US, Indonesia, Madrid and London, and other acts of violence may adversely affect the Indian stock markets where our Equity Shares will trade as well the global equity markets generally. Such acts could negatively impact business sentiment as well as trade between countries, which could adversely affect our Company s business and profitability. Additionally, such events could have a material adverse effect on the market for securities of Indian companies, including the Equity Shares. 61. Any downgrading of India s sovereign rating by an independent agency may harm our ability to raise financing. Any adverse revisions to India's credit ratings for domestic and international debt by international rating agencies may adversely impact our ability to raise additional financing, and the interest rates and other commercial terms at which such additional financing may be available. This could have an adverse effect on our business and future financial performance, our ability to obtain financing for capital expenditures and the trading price of our Equity Shares. 62. Financial instability in Indian financial markets could adversely affect our Company s results of operations and financial condition. In this globalized world, the Indian economy and financial markets are significantly influenced by worldwide economic, financial and market conditions. Any financial turmoil, say in the United States of America, Europe, China or other emerging economies, may have a negative impact on the Indian economy. Although economic conditions differ in each country, investors reactions to any significant developments in one country can have adverse effects on the financial and market conditions in other countries. A loss in investor confidence in the financial systems, particularly in other emerging markets, may cause increased volatility in Indian financial markets. Indian financial markets have also experienced the contagion effect of the global financial turmoil. Any prolonged financial crisis may have an adverse impact on the Indian economy, thereby resulting in a material and adverse effect on our Company's business, operations, and financial condition Page 30 of 370

32 SECTION III INTRODUCTION SUMMARY OF OUR INDUSTRY Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus The information in this section includes extracts from publicly available information, data and statistics and has been derived from various government publications. Neither we nor any other person connected with the Issue have verified this information. The data may have been re-classified by us for the purposes of presentation. Industry sources and publications generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources generally believed to be reliable, but their accuracy, completeness and underlying assumptions are not guaranteed and their reliability cannot be assured and, accordingly, investment decisions should not be based on such information. You should read the entire Draft Prospectus, including the information contained in the sections titled Risk Factors and Financial Statements and related notes beginning on page 13 and 173 respectively of this Draft Prospectus before deciding to invest in our Equity Shares. GLOBAL AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY Global fish production has grown steadily in the last five decades, with food fish supply increasing at an average annual rate of 3.2 percent, outpacing world population growth at 1.6 percent. World per capita apparent fish consumption increased from an average of 9.9 kg in the 1960s to 19.2 kg in This impressive development has been driven by a combination of population growth, rising incomes and urbanization, and facilitated by the strong expansion of Aquaculture production and more efficient distribution channels. China has been responsible for most of the growth in fish availability, owing to the dramatic expansion in its fish production, particularly from aquaculture. Its per capita apparent fish consumption also increased an average annual rate of 6.0 percent in the period to about 35.1 kg in Annual per capita fish supply in the rest of the world was about 15.4 kg in 2010 (11.4 kg in the 1960s and 13.5 kg in the 1990s).Despite the surge in annual per capita apparent fish consumption in developing regions (from 5.2 kg in 1961 to 17.8 kg in 2010) and low-income food-deficit countries (LIFDCs) (from 4.9 to 10.9 kg), developed regions still have higher levels of consumption, although the gap is narrowing. A sizeable and growing share of fish consumed in developed countries consists of imports, owing to steady demand and declining domestic fishery production. In developing countries, fish consumption tends to be based on locally and seasonally available products, with supply driving the fish chain. However, fuelled by rising domestic income and wealth, consumers in emerging economies are experiencing a diversification of the types of fish available owing to an increase in fishery imports.

33 World food fish aquaculture production expanded at an average annual rate of 6.2 percent in the period (9.5 percent in ) from 32.4 million to 66.6 million tonnes. In the same period, growth was relatively faster in Africa (11.7 percent) and Latin America and the Caribbean (10 percent). Excluding China, production in the rest of Asia grew by 8.2 percent per year (4.8 percent in ). The annual growth rate in China, the largest aquaculture producer, averaged 5.5 percent in (12.7 percent in ). In 2012, production in North America was lower than in Global aquaculture production attained another all-time high of 90.4 million tonnes (live weight equivalent) in 2012 (US$144.4 billion), including 66.6 million tonnes of food fish and 23.8 million tonnes of aquatic algae, with estimates for 2013 of 70.5 million and 26.1 million tonnes, respectively. China alone produced 43.5 million tonnes of food fish and 13.5 million tonnes of aquatic algae that year. Some developed countries, e.g. the United States of America, have reduced their aquaculture output in recent years, mainly owing to competition from countries with lower production costs.an important change in trade patterns is the increased share of developing countries in fishery trade. Developing economies saw their share rise to 54 percent of total fishery exports by value in 2012, and more than 60 percent by quantity (live weight). Although developed countries continue to dominate world imports of fish and fishery products, their share has decreased. Exports from developing countries have increased significantly in recent decades also thanks to the lowering of tariffs. This trend follows the expanding membership of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the entry into force of bilateral and multilateral trade agreements, and rising disposable incomes in emerging economies. However, several factors continue to constrain developing countries in accessing international markets INDIAN AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY Vannamei prawns Tiger Shrimp Indian banana prawn Aquaculture in India is a very important economic activity and a flourishing sector with varied resources and potentials. Only after the Indian Independence, has fisheries together with agriculture been recognized as an important sector. The vibrancy of the sector can be visualized by the 11 fold increase that India achieved in fish production in just six decades, i.e. from 0.75 million tonnes in to 9.6 million tonnes during This resulted in an unparalleled average annual growth rate of over 4.5 percent over the years which have placed the country on the forefront of global fish production, only after China. As the second largest country in aquaculture production, the share of inland fisheries and aquaculture has gone up from 46 percent in the 1980s to over 85 percent in recent years in total fish production. Freshwater aquaculture showed an overwhelming ten-fold growth from 0.37 million tonnes in 1980 to 4.03 million tonnes in 2010; with a mean annual growth rate of over 6 percent. Freshwater aquaculture contributes to over 95 percent of the total aquaculture production. The Freshwater aquaculture comprises of the culture of carp fishes, culture of catfishes (air breathing and non-air breathing), culture of freshwater prawns, culture of pangasius, and culture of tilapia. In addition, in brackishwater sector, the aquaculture includes culture of shrimp varieties mainly, the native giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) and exotic white leg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei). Thus, the production of carp in freshwater and shrimps in brackish water form the bulk of major areas of aquaculture activity. The three Indian major carps, namely catla (Catla catla), rohu (Labeo rohita) and mrigal (Cirrhinus mrigala) contribute the bulk of production to the extent of 70 to 75 percent of the total fresh water fish production, followed by silver carp, grass carp, common carp, catfishes forming a second Page 32 of 370

34 important group contributing the balance of 25 to 30 percent. It is estimated that only about 40 percent of the available area of 2.36 million hectares of ponds and tanks has been put to use and an immense scope for expansion of area exists under freshwater aquaculture The national mean production levels from stillwater ponds has gone up from about 600 kg/hectare/year in 1974 to over kg/hectare/annum at present and several farmers are even demonstrating higher production levels of 8 12 tonnes/hectare/year. The technologies of induced carp breeding and polyculture in static ponds and tanks virtually revolutionized the freshwater aquaculture sector and turned the sector into a fast growing commercial sector. The developmental support provided by the Indian Government through a network of Fish Farmers' Development Agencies and Brackishwater Fish Farmers' Development Agencies and the research and development programmes of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) have been the principal vehicles for this revolutionary development. In addition, additional support was also provided by various state governments, host of organizations and agencies like the Marine Products Export Development Authority, financial institutions, etc. The freshwater prawn farming has received increased attention only in the last two decades due to its high consumer demand. The giant river prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, the largest and fastest growing prawn species, is cultured either under monoculture or polyculture with major carps. Culture for mariculture species has been initiated in the country and is presently carried out to a limited extent for seaweeds, and mussels as a commercial activity and some fish species like seabass and cobia on an experimental basis to standardize the technology. While sustainability is being addressed, the present concern is with regard to species diversification, in spite of the fact that the country possesses several other endemic potential and cultivable medium and minor carp species having regional demand, such as, Labeo calbasu, L. fimbriatus, L.gonius, L.dussumieri, L.bata, Cirrihinus cirrhosa, C.reba, Puntius sarana, P.jerdoni. Efforts are being made to standardize the technology of mass-scale seed production of these species and their inclusion as a component of conventional carp polyculture, based on their regional importance. In addition, there is contribution from cold water fisheries, although insufficient for fish basket, is of high value and low volume category with a projected volume of 1 percent. Important food fishes of cold waters are mahaseer and schizothoracids belonging to the indigenous species and trouts among the exotic varieties. India's aquaculture production basically can be classified into freshwater and brackish water production. There are 429 Fish Farmers Development Agencies (FFDA) and 39 brackish water Fish Farmers Development Agencies (BFDAs) for promoting freshwater and coastal aquaculture. The freshwater prawn farming has received increased attention only in the last two decades due to its high consumer demand. The giant river prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, the largest and fastest growing prawn species, is cultured either under monoculture or polyculture with major carps. Culture for mariculture species has been initiated in the country and is presently carried out to a limited extent for seaweeds, and mussels as a commercial activity and some fish species like seabass and cobia on an experimental basis to standardize the technology.

35 Aquaculture in India has evolved as a viable commercial farming practice from the level of traditionally backyard activity over last three decades with considerable diversification in terms of species and systems, and has been showing an impressive annual growth rate of 6-7 percent. While the carp-based freshwater aquaculture, mainly constituted by the Indian major carps, such as, catla, rohu and mrigal, has been contributing over 90 percent of the aquaculture production satisfying the domestic need, the shrimpbased coastal aquaculture contributes to only about 5 percent of the export earnings. Aquaculture in India has become an important sector that includes carps, catfishes and prawns. Lately, the Government of India has also identified catfish farming as a national priority and has emphasized on diversification of culture practices. The importance and role of shrimp farming in India s economy was realized in the early seventies, and the first Experimental Brackish water Fish Farm began in Kakdwip, West Bengal, by the Central Inland Fisheries Research Institute under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in This was followed by an All-India Coordinated Research Project on Brackish water Fish Farming was started in 1975 by the ICAR with centres in West Bengal, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Kerala and Goa. Later, a number of development schemes were initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Government of India; including setting up of Brackish water Fish Farmers Development Agencies (BFDA) in the maritime states for the development of shrimp farming. This paved way for the establishment of a number of shrimp hatcheries and farms in the coastal states in the early nineties. India witnessed a phenomenal increase in the area under shrimp farming which occurred between , and the growth rate was phenomenal till In fact, farmed shrimp production recorded over five-fold increase from 28,000 tonnes in to 1,44,346 tonnes in and operating at around 1,00,000 tonnes over the years. More than 90 percent of the shrimp farmers in India are small land holders owning less than 2 hectares. Freshwater aquaculture Freshwater aquaculture is based on. carp culture.it revolves around the 'polyculture' of the three Indian major carps (catla, roho labeo and mrigal carp), as well as 'composite carp culture' of the three Indian major carps with the three exotic carps (silver, grass and common carp). Standard practices in carp culture include: The stocking of carp at combined densities varies depending on the system of culture Pond fertilization with organic manures from cattle or poultry, as well as inorganic fertilizers like urea and single super phosphate. Provision of supplementary feeds mainly in the form of a mixture of rice bran/wheat bran and groundnut/mustard oilcake in equal ratio. Source: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations There are more than 100 species of Freshwater prawn found in the world. There are more than 25 species found in India. Out of these 10 species are important from commercial point of view. Out of them Macrobrachium rosenbengii is the main species which is used in culture practices. This is also known as giant prawn. This can be cultured in both fresh water as well as brackish water. It is fast growing animal and farmers can culture profitably. It contains percent animal protein and has less cholesterol. It has essential amino-acids and mineral which are very important for human beings. In culture practices, the freshwater prawn has two stages i.e. Nursery Pond and Growout Pond. Fresh water prawn is stocked in nursery pond for days then it is shifted to grow-out ponds. The ponds are prepared by using manure and fertilizers. The stocking density in nursery pond is kept lakh per hectare. Feed is provided gm per kg body weight at initial stage. Check trays are used to regulate the feeding. Prawn crop becomes ready for sale with 7-8 months. The expenditure about Rs lakh per hectare and income is Rs lakh. Thus net income is Rs lakh per hectare in 8 months.

36 Level-1: EXTENSIVE FRESHWATER PRAWN CULTURE Extensive culture means rearing in ponds (but also in other impoundments such as reservoirs, irrigation ponds and rice fields) which produce less than 500 kg/ha/yr of freshwater prawns. They are stocked, often from wild sources, with PL or juveniles at 1-4/m2. There is no control of water quality; the growth or mortality of the prawns is not normally monitored; supplemental feeding is not normally supplied; and organic fertilisation is rarely applied. Level-2: SEMI-INTENSIVE FRESHWATER CULTURE PRAWN Semi-intensive systems involve stocking PL or juvenile freshwater prawns (usually from hatcheries) at 4-20/m2 in ponds, and result in a range of productivity of more than 500 kg/ha/yr and less than that defined as intensive in this box. Fertilisation is used and a balanced feed ration is supplied. Predators and competitors are controlled and water quality, prawn health and growth rate are monitored. This form of culture is the most common in tropical areas. Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus Level-3: INTENSIVE FRESHWATER PRAWN CULTURE Intensive culture refers to freshwater prawn farming in small earth or concrete ponds (up to 0.2 ha) provided with high water exchange and continuous aeration, stocked at more than 20/m2 and achieving an output of more than kg/ha/yr. Construction and maintenance costs are high and a high degree of management is required, which includes the use of a nutritionally complete feed, the elimination of predators and competitors, and strict control over all aspects of water quality.. Brackish water aquaculture Brackish water aquaculture in India is restricted to shrimp farming utilizing semi-intensive culture practices mainly with giant tiger prawn at stocking densities of million/ha. With the provision of a high protein diet, water exchange, aeration and improved health management, production levels of 4 6 tonnes/ha have been demonstrated in a production period of 4 5 months. However, the presence of white spot syndrome during drastically reduced prawn farming activity in the late 1990s. The adoption of a more cautious approach including moderate stocking densities and good management practices has helped in the revival of the sector and in sustaining shrimp production of the country. Furthermore, with the recent introduction of Penaeus vannamei, the shrimp culture is again regaining its glory of export earner at large. The brackish water aquaculture sector is mainly supported by shrimp production, as well as, the giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), which is responsible for the bulk of production followed by the recently introduced whiteleg shrimp, Penaeus vannamei. In fact, the culture of this shrimp picked up on par with tiger shrimp in very short span of time. Although India possesses several other potential species of finfish and shellfish, the production of these, is still very low key. Page 35 of 370

38 Overview SUMMARY OF OUR BUSINESS Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus Incorporated in 2009, our Company is pioneer in aquaculture industry in the state of Gujarat. Our Company is engaged in farming of shrimps viz. white shrimps and tiger shrimps which has an enormous demand worldwide for human consumption. In addition to shrimp farming, our Company also deals in products used in aquaculture of shrimps such as shrimp seeds, feeds, probiotics and others. Driven by rich experience of more than 20 years in aquaculture, innovation and investment in R&D, our Promoters strategized to capitalize on the growing global demand of shrimps and instituted our Company under the name Zeal Aqua Private Limited in March 2009 with a vision to develop an advanced, sustained and fully integrated aquaculture system across India. Subsequently in March 2015, our Company was converted into a public limited company and its name was changed to Zeal Aqua Limited. The revolution of aquaculture industry gained momentum, with the realization of the government to make commercial use of coastal lands which could not be used for agricultural purposes. The introduction of schemes of Government to allot coastal lands for aquaculture purposes to promote this industry and generate a source of revenue for farmers motivated our Promoters to enter this industry. Our Promoters who were individually culturing shrimps joined hands in 2009 to form our Company to make the business scalable and reap the benefits of synergy. At present, our Company has 81 ponds spread over around 102 hectares of land, wherein the land is being used by our Company in accordance with collaboration agreements entered with various parties. The said collaboration agreements ensure continuity of land availability on which our Company constructs ponds. In addition to shrimp farming on own ponds, our Company is also engaged in satellite farming whereby our Company supplies inputs on credit to small farmers and buys shrimps from these farmers. We deploy our specific quality control measures and the farmers under satellite farming are required to adhere to our farming standards. The satellite farming enables companies to scale up and multiply its production without putting up physical infrastructure on its own. This flexible model of shrimp production helps our Company to efficiently manage growing demand of shrimps. Our growing operations are witnessed by our sales turnover which has scaled multifold over the years. Our Company now intends to make a forward integration and is in the process of setting up a cold storage unit with processing facilities. This shall open our avenues to international markets. This is one of our major step in developing an integrated aquaculture system. Our Company not only believes in growing in numbers, but it believes in growing technologically and in an eco-friendly manner. With the objective of enhancing productivity, quality and minimize environmental degradation our Company has taken various measures such as introduction of PE Line Ponds, use of qualitative feeds, bio-security measures such as fencing and water management among others. Our state of art infrastructure and farming practices have been recognized and has fetched us the following recognitions: CIFE award in year Bhumi Nirman Award in 2011 Fisheries excellence award by Doordarshan Best Farmers for L.Vannemai by MPEDA in 2013 We believe in qualitative production with an eco-friendly approach and have thereby developed a longcontinuing relationship with our customers. With the experience of our Promoters, technological drive, continuous research, supplier tie-ups, customer relationships, government support and industry demand for shrimps and a forward integration in pipeline, our Company aims to become largest shrimp house in India and capture global markets as well.

APPROACH TO AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY Aquaculture continues to be the fastest growing animal food-producing Industry Aquaculture also known as aqua farming is the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, shrimps/prawns and aquatic plants. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Farming also implies individual or corporate ownership of the stock being cultivated. For statistical purposes, aquatic organisms which are harvested by an individual or corporate body which has owned them throughout their rearing period contribute to aquaculture while aquatic organisms which are exploitable by public as a common property resource, with or without appropriate licences, are the harvest of fisheries World Aquaculture production in 2012 was million tonnes including million tonnes of food fish, million tonnes of aquatic algae (mostly marine macro algae/ seaweeds), and 22.4 thousand tonnes of non food products ( pearls & shells etc.). On global average, aquaculture supplied 9.41 of food fish per person for consumption in However, production distribution is extremely uneven across the globe and on all continents owing to the imbalance development.

OVERVIEW OF INDIAN ECONOMY India is set to become the world s fastest-growing major economy by 2016 ahead of China, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said in its recent latest forecast. India is expected to grow at 6.3 per cent in 2015, and 6.5 per cent in 2016 by when it is likely to cross China's projected growth rate, the IMF said in the latest update of its World Economic Outlook. India's macro-economic prospects have strengthened and the country is best positioned among emerging market economies, gaining global investor's attention, says a report by ICICI Bank. The improvement in India s economic fundamentals has accelerated in FY2015 with the combined impact of a strong Government mandate, RBI's inflation focus supported by benign global commodity prices. Source: Outlook for Growth In the coming year, real GDP growth at market prices is estimated to be about percentage points higher vis-a-vis This increase is warranted by four factors. First, the government has undertaken a number of reforms and is planning several more. Cumulative growth impact of these reforms will be positive. A further impetus to growth will be provided by declining oil prices and increasing monetary easing facilitated by on-going moderation in inflation. Simulating the effects of tax cuts, declining oil prices will add spending power to households, thereby boosting consumption and growth. Oil is also a significant input in production, and declining prices will shore up profit margins and hence balance sheets of the corporate sector. Declining input costs are reflected in the wholesale price index which moved to deflation territory in January Page 94 of 370

96 Further decline in inflation and the resulting monetary easing will provide policy support for growth both by encouraging household spending in interest-sensitive sectors and reducing the debt burden of firms, strengthening their balance sheets. The final favourable impulse will be the monsoon which is forecast to be normal compared to last year. Using the new estimate for as the base, this implies growth at market prices of percent in The power of growth to lift all boats will depend critically on its employment creation potential. Source Economic Survey ; indiabudget.nic.in Outlook for Reforms In the months ahead, several reforms will help boost investment and growth. The budget should continue the process of fiscal consolidation, embedding actions in a medium-term framework. India s overall revenue-to-gdp ratio (for the general government) for 2014 is estimated at 19.5 percent by the IMF. This needs to move toward levels in comparator countries estimated at 25 percent for emerging Asian economies and 29 percent for the emerging market countries in the G-20. Since assuming office in May 2014, the new government has undertaken a number of new reform measures whose cumulative impact could be substantial. Fiscal Framework Notwithstanding the challenging nature of the budget, elaborated in the Mid-Year Economic Analysis , the Government will adhere to the fiscal target of 4.1 per cent of GDP. Despite weakness in revenue collection and delayed disinvestment, new excises on diesel and petrol (revenue yield of about 20,000 crores), reduced subsidies, and expenditure compression will ensure the commitment to discipline. India can reconcile the requirements of fiscal consolidation and the imperative of boosting public investment to revive growth and crowd-in private investment provided the right lessons are learnt. Since this is the first full budget of the new government, and especially in light of the far-reaching recommendations of the Fourteenth Finance Commission, the time is ripe for reviewing the medium-term framework and setting targets for the upcoming year against that background and taking account of the lessons of recent history. Three phases marked recent fiscal history. a. At first rapid growth improved all fiscal aggregates, flows and stocks. But failure to control expenditure, especially revenue expenditure, towards the end of that phase, combined with excessive counter-cyclical policies in the second phase ( ) led to a loss of fiscal control that contributed to the near-crisis of A casualty has been low and stagnating capital expenditure. In the third phase (2013-today), a modicum of fiscal stability has been restored. This history suggests the following strategy going forward. First, in the medium term, India must meet its medium-term target of 3 percent of GDP. This will provide the fiscal space to insure against future shocks and also to move closer to the fiscal performance of its emerging market peers. It must also reverse the trajectory of recent years and move toward the golden rule of eliminating revenue deficits and ensuring that, over the cycle, borrowing is only for capital formation. b. Second, the way to achieve these targets will be expenditure control and expenditure switching from consumption to investment. And the secular decline in capital expenditure in the last decade has undermined India s long run growth potential. From , as growth gathers steam and as the GST is implemented, the consequential tax buoyancy when combined with expenditure control will ensure that medium term targets can be comfortably met. This buoyancy is assured by history because over the course of the growth surge in the last decade, the overall tax-gdp ratio increased by about 2.7 percentage points, from 9.2 percent in to 11.9 per cent in even without radical tax reform. c. Third, the medium-term commitment to discipline cannot result in an Augustinian deferment of actions. In the upcoming year, too, fiscal consolidation must continue. However, the need for accelerated fiscal consolidation has lessened because macroeconomic pressures have Page 95 of 370

97 significantly abated with the dramatic decline in inflation and turnaround in the current account deficit. Market size The government, engineering an economic rebound with a slew of reforms, has unveiled a new statistical method to calculate the national income with a broader framework that turned up a pleasant surprise: GDP in the past year grew 6.9 per cent instead of the earlier 4.7 per cent. The revision in base year of India's national accounts will increase the size of the economy to Rs trillion (US$ 1.8 trillion) in FY14, according to India Ratings. The size of the Indian economy was at about Rs trillion (US$ 1.51 trillion) in Government Initiatives India has become a promising investment destination for foreign companies looking to do business here. Mr Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, has launched the 'Make in India' initiative with the aim to give the Indian economy global recognition. This initiative is expected to increase the purchasing power of the common man, which would further boost demand, and hence spur development, in addition to benefiting investors. The steps taken by the government in recent times have shown positive results as India's gross domestic product (GDP) at factor cost at constant ( ) prices for Q1 of is estimated at Rs trillion (US$ billion), as against Rs trillion (US$ billion) in Q1 of , registering a growth rate of 5.7 per cent. Based on the recommendations of the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB), the Government of India has approved 14 proposals of FDI amounting to Rs 1, crore (US$ million) approximately. Out of the 14 approved proposals, six of them belonged to the pharmaceutical sector which was the highest number of approvals for any sector. Page 96 of 370

98 Road Ahead Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank in a joint report have forecasted that India will register a growth of 6.4 per cent in 2015, due to renewed confidence in the market brought about by a series of economic reforms pursued by the government. Only India is anticipated to witness better growth momentum among the BRIC bloc whereas other member countries are expected to see stable growth momentum, according to Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). India could become the world's seventh biggest nation in terms of private wealth, with a 150 per cent increase in total, from US$ 2 trillion in 2013 to US$ 5 trillion in 2018, as per a recent study by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Furthermore, the new 'Make in India' initiative is expected to be a vital component in India's quest for achieving wholesome economic development.

World per capita apparent fish consumption increased from an average of 9.9 kg in the 1960s to 19.2 kg in This impressive development has been driven by a combination of population growth, rising incomes and urbanization, and facilitated by the strong expansion of Aquaculture production and more efficient distribution channels. China has been responsible for most of the growth in fish availability, owing to the dramatic expansion in its fish production, particularly from aquaculture. Its per capita apparent fish consumption also increased an average annual rate of 6.0 percent in the period to about 35.1 kg in Annual per capita fish supply in the rest of the world was about 15.4 kg in 2010 (11.4 kg in the 1960s and 13.5 kg in the 1990s).Despite the surge in annual per capita apparent fish consumption in developing regions (from 5.2 kg in 1961 to 17.8 kg in 2010) and low-income food-deficit countries (LIFDCs) (from 4.9 to 10.9 kg), developed regions still have higher levels of consumption, although the gap is narrowing. A sizeable and growing share of fish consumed in developed countries consists of imports, owing to steady demand and declining domestic fishery production. In developing countries, fish consumption tends to be based on locally and seasonally available products, with supply driving the fish chain. However, fuelled by rising domestic income and wealth, consumers in emerging economies are experiencing a diversification of the types of fish available owing to an increase in fishery imports.

99 World capture fishers and aquaculture production Source: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations- World food fish aquaculture production expanded at an average annual rate of 6.2 percent in the period (9.5 percent in ) from 32.4 million to 66.6 million tonnes. In the same period, growth was relatively faster in Africa (11.7 percent) and Latin America and the Caribbean (10 percent). Excluding China, production in the rest of Asia grew by 8.2 percent per year (4.8 percent in ). The annual growth rate in China, the largest aquaculture producer, averaged 5.5 percent in (12.7 percent in ). In 2012, production in North America was lower than in Global aquaculture production attained another all-time high of 90.4 million tonnes (live weight equivalent) in 2012 (US$144.4 billion), including 66.6 million tonnes of food fish and 23.8 million tonnes of aquatic algae, with estimates for 2013 of 70.5 million and 26.1 million tonnes, respectively. China alone produced 43.5 million tonnes of food fish and 13.5 million tonnes of aquatic algae that year. Some developed countries, e.g. the United States of America, have reduced their aquaculture output in recent years, mainly owing to competition from countries with lower production costs.an important change in trade patterns is the increased share of developing countries in fishery trade. Developing economies saw their share rise to 54 percent of total fishery exports by value in 2012, and more than 60 percent by quantity (live weight). Although developed countries continue to dominate world imports of fish and fishery products, their share has decreased. Exports from developing countries have increased significantly in recent decades also thanks to the lowering of tariffs. This trend follows the expanding membership of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the entry into force of bilateral and multilateral trade agreements, and rising disposable incomes in emerging economies. However, several factors continue to constrain developing countries in accessing international markets RECENT CHALLENGES FACED BY SHRIMP INDUSTRY The unusual supply shortage during the peak farming season in Asia, the prolonged Eurozone crisis, the weak yen the EMS (Early Mortality Syndrome) outbreak amongst Thailand Shrimp and the US ruling on the countervailing duties have all combined to bring negative impacts on the international trade for shrimp, but raw material shortage has kept shrimp prices firm worldwide. Market growth was stagnant in the two large western markets of the EU and USA, with imports in these markets at a 5-year low during the first quarter of Increased landing costs associated with the yen depreciation in Japan affected household demand for raw shrimp compared with processed shrimp. Page 98 of 370

100 Meanwhile, in Southeast Asia, stable consumer demand is keeping fresh shrimp prices high, compared with frozen products for export markets. In India, smaller sizes of fresh vannamei continue to enjoy good demand in the local market. In 2013 the USA imported nearly 2, 000 tonnes less shrimp in March 2013 compared with the same period in Cumulative imports were down 8.35% because of reduced production in Thailand and supply shortfall in Ecuador, Indonesia, Viet Nam and China during that period. However, imports increased significantly from India (+70%). The trend is similar in India, which is now possibly the second largest export processor of farmed shrimp, after Thailand. Farmed vannamei shrimp production almost doubled last year. Farmers have learnt how to balance the harvest against the market demand. Official reports estimated a production of 2,30,000 tonnes of vannamei shrimp in However, black tiger harvests have declined because of the diversification in the farmed species. Source: - FAO GLOBEFISH VARIETY OF FARMED SPECIES OF SHRIMPS Thousands of species of shrimp inhabit the brackish and marine waters of the globe. Most are rare, very small, or not suitable for human consumption. Although there are many species of shrimp and prawn, only a few of the larger ones are actually cultivated. The giant tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) and the western white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) probably account for approximately 90% of the shrimp produced on farms around the world in the past few years. Western White Shrimp (Penaeus vannamei): Native to the Pacific coast of Central and South America (from Mexico to Peru), P. vannamei is the leading farm-raised species in the Western Hemisphere, representing more than 99% of production. White shrimp can be stocked at small sizes, have a uniform growth rate and reach a maximum length of 230 millimetres. They breed in captivity better than monodon, but not as readily as many of the other penaeids (below). Hatchery survivals are high, from 50% to 60%. Throughout Latin America, hatcheries maintain captive stocks of vannamei broodstock, some of them pathogenfree, some of them pathogen-resistant and some of them in captivity for 30 years. Farmers throughout Asia are switching to vannamei, and it has now become the dominant species around the world. Most of the major shrimp farming countries in Asia have established breeding centers for vannamei, and they are expected to do the same thing for monodon. Page 99 of 370

101 Giant Tiger Shrimp (Penaeus monodon): Named for its huge size and banded tail, P. monodon accounts for about a quarter of the farmed shrimp coming out of Asia. Native to the Indian Ocean and the southwestern Pacific Ocean from Japan to Australia, "tigers" are the largest (maximum length 363 millimeters) and fastest growing of the farmed shrimp. They tolerate a wide range of salinities, but shortages of wild broodstock often exist, captive breeding is difficult and hatchery survivals are low (20% to 30%). Tigers are very susceptible to two of the most lethal shrimp viruses: yellowhead and whitespot. Specific pathogen free broodstock and postlarvae began appearing on the market in 2009, primarily in Vietnam and India. Indian White Shrimp (Penaeus indicus): Indicus is raised on extensive farms throughout Southeast Asia, and it is widely cultured in India, the Middle East and eastern Africa. It tolerates low water quality better than monodon, it likes high salinities, high temperatures and high densities, and it is readily available in the wild. Indicus also spawns in ponds. Iranian shrimp farms produces more indicus than any other country. Native to the Indian Ocean from southern Africa to northern Australia and to all of Southeast Asia, indicus is one of the major species in the region's commercial fishery. It is the most important species caught off the east coast of Africa and is probably the most important commercial species in India, especially in the inshore fishery and in the rice field farming around Kerala. Page 100 of 370

102 Chinese White Shrimp (Penaeus chinensis, also known as P. orientalis): Native to the coast of China and the west coast of the Korean peninsula, Chinese white shrimp grow better in lower water temperatures (down to 16 degrees Celsius) than vannamei and monodon, tolerate muddy bottoms and very low salinities and, unlike the above species, Chinese white shrimp readily mature and spawn in ponds. On the negative side, they have a high protein requirement (40% to 60%), a small size (maximum length of 183 millimeters), and a lower meat yield (56%) than monodon (61%) and vannamei (63%). Also, chinensis appears to be more susceptible to viruses than vannamei, which is replacing it in southern China and on Hainan Island. Japanese Kuruma Shrimp (Penaeus japonicus): Native to the Indian Ocean and the Southwestern Pacific Ocean from Japan to Australia, kuruma shrimp are farmed in Japan and Australia. Live kuruma shrimp bring outrageously high prices in Japan, as high as $100 a pound! They require clean, sandy bottoms and high protein diets (55%). Markets are limited to Japan. Australia has a few farms that export japonicus to Japan. Source: - Page 101 of 370

103 INDIAN AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY Vannamei prawns Tiger Shrimp Indian banana prawn Aquaculture in India is a very important economic activity and a flourishing sector with varied resources and potentials. Only after the Indian Independence, has fisheries together with agriculture been recognized as an important sector. The vibrancy of the sector can be visualized by the 11 fold increase that India achieved in fish production in just six decades, i.e. from 0.75 million tonnes in to 9.6 million tonnes during This resulted in an unparalleled average annual growth rate of over 4.5 percent over the years which have placed the country on the forefront of global fish production, only after China. As the second largest country in aquaculture production, the share of inland fisheries and aquaculture has gone up from 46 percent in the 1980s to over 85 percent in recent years in total fish production. Freshwater aquaculture showed an overwhelming ten-fold growth from 0.37 million tonnes in 1980 to 4.03 million tonnes in 2010; with a mean annual growth rate of over 6 percent. Freshwater aquaculture contributes to over 95 percent of the total aquaculture production. The Freshwater aquaculture comprises of the culture of carp fishes, culture of catfishes (air breathing and non-air breathing), culture of freshwater prawns, culture of pangasius, and culture of tilapia. In addition, in brackishwater sector, the aquaculture includes culture of shrimp varieties mainly, the native giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon) and exotic white leg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei). Thus, the production of carp in freshwater and shrimps in brackish water form the bulk of major areas of aquaculture activity. The three Indian major carps, namely catla (Catla catla), rohu (Labeo rohita) and mrigal (Cirrhinus mrigala) contribute the bulk of production to the extent of 70 to 75 percent of the total fresh water fish production, followed by silver carp, grass carp, common carp, catfishes forming a second important group contributing the balance of 25 to 30 percent. It is estimated that only about 40 percent of the available area of 2.36 million hectares of ponds and tanks has been put to use and an immense scope for expansion of area exists under freshwater aquaculture The national mean production levels from still-water ponds has gone up from about 600 kg/hectare/year in 1974 to over kg/hectare/annum at present and several farmers are even demonstrating higher production levels of 8 12 tonnes/hectare/year.the technologies of induced carp breeding and polyculture in static ponds and tanks virtually revolutionized the freshwater aquaculture sector and turned the sector into a fast growing commercial sector. The developmental support provided by the Indian Government through a network of Fish Farmers' Development Agencies and Brackishwater Fish Farmers' Development Agencies and the research and development programmes of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) have been the principal vehicles for this revolutionary development. In addition, additional support was also provided by various state governments, host of organizations and agencies like the Marine Products Export Development Authority, financial institutions, etc. The freshwater prawn farming has received increased attention only in the last two decades due to its high consumer demand. The giant river prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, the largest and fastest growing prawn species, is cultured either under monoculture or polyculture with major carps. Culture for mariculture species has been initiated in the country and is presently carried out to a limited extent for seaweeds, and mussels as a commercial activity and some fish species like seabass and cobia on an experimental basis to standardize the technology. While sustainability is being addressed, the present concern is with regard to species diversification, in spite of the fact that the country possesses several other endemic potential and cultivable medium and minor carp species having regional demand, such as, Labeo calbasu, L. fimbriatus, L.gonius, Page 102 of 370

104 L.dussumieri, L.bata, Cirrihinus cirrhosa, C.reba, Puntius sarana, P.jerdoni. Efforts are being made to standardize the technology of mass-scale seed production of these species and their inclusion as a component of conventional carp polyculture, based on their regional importance. In addition, there is contribution from cold water fisheries, although insufficient for fish basket, is of high value and low volume category with a projected volume of 1 percent. Important food fishes of cold waters are mahaseer and schizothoracids belonging to the indigenous species and trouts among the exotic varieties. India's aquaculture production basically can be classified into freshwater and brackish water production. There are 429 Fish Farmers Development Agencies (FFDA) and 39 Brackish water Fish Farmers Development Agencies (BFDAs) for promoting freshwater and coastal aquaculture. The freshwater prawn farming has received increased attention only in the last two decades due to its high consumer demand. The giant river prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, the largest and fastest growing prawn species, is cultured either under monoculture or polyculture with major carps. Culture for mariculture species has been initiated in the country and is presently carried out to a limited extent for seaweeds, and mussels as a commercial activity and some fish species like seabass and cobia on an experimental basis to standardize the technology. Freshwater Aquaculture Brakish Water Aquaculture Indian Aquuculture Industry Aquaculture in India has evolved as a viable commercial farming practice from the level of traditionally backyard activity over last three decades with considerable diversification in terms of species and systems, and has been showing an impressive annual growth rate of 6-7 percent. While the carp-based freshwater aquaculture, mainly constituted by the Indian major carps, such as, catla, rohu and mrigal, has been contributing over 90 percent of the aquaculture production satisfying the domestic need, the shrimp-based coastal aquaculture contributes to only about 5 percent of the export earnings. Aquaculture in India has become an important sector that includes carps, catfishes and prawns. Lately, the Government of India has also identified catfish farming as a national priority and has emphasized on diversification of culture practices. The importance and role of shrimp farming in India s economy was realized in the early seventies, and the first Experimental Brackish water Fish Farm began in Kakdwip, West Bengal, by the Central Inland Fisheries Research Institute under the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in This was followed by an All-India Coordinated Research Project on Brackish water Fish Farming was started in 1975 by the ICAR with centres in West Bengal, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, Tamilnadu, Kerala and Goa. Later, a number of development schemes were initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Government of India; including setting up of Brackish water Fish Farmers Development Agencies (BFDA) in the maritime states for the development of shrimp farming. This paved way for the establishment of a number of shrimp hatcheries and farms in the coastal states in the early nineties. India witnessed a phenomenal increase in the area under shrimp farming which occurred between , and the growth rate was phenomenal till In fact, farmed shrimp production recorded over five-fold increase from 28,000 tonnes in to 1,44,346 tonnes in and operating at around 1,00,000 tonnes over the years. More than 90 percent of the shrimp farmers in India are small land holders owning less than 2 hectares. Page 103 of 370

105 Freshwater aquaculture Zeal Aqua Limited Draft Prospectus Freshwater aquaculture is based on. carp culture.it revolves around the 'polyculture' of the three Indian major carps (catla, roho labeo and mrigal carp), as well as 'composite carp culture' of the three Indian major carps with the three exotic carps (silver, grass and common carp). Standard practices in carp culture include: The stocking of carp at combined densities varies depending on the system of culture Pond fertilization with organic manures from cattle or poultry, as well as inorganic fertilizers like urea and single super phosphate. Provision of supplementary feeds mainly in the form of a mixture of rice bran/wheat bran and groundnut/mustard oilcake in equal ratio. Source: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations There are more than 100 species of Freshwater prawn found in the world. There are more than 25 species found in India. Out of these 10 species are important from commercial point of view. Out of them Macrobrachium rosenbengii is the main species which is used in culture practices. This is also known as giant prawn. This can be cultured in both fresh water as well as brackish water. It is fast growing animal and farmers can culture profitably. It contains percent animal protein and has less cholesterol. It has essential amino-acids and mineral which are very important for human beings. In culture practices, the freshwater prawn has two stages i.e. Nursery Pond and Growout Pond. Fresh water prawn is stocked in nursery pond for days then it is shifted to grow-out ponds. The ponds are prepared by using manure and fertilizers. The stocking density in nursery pond is kept lakh per hectare. Feed is provided gm per kg body weight at initial stage. Check trays are used to regulate the feeding. Prawn crop becomes ready for sale with 7-8 months. The expenditure about Rs lakh per hectare and income is Rs lakh. Thus net income is Rs lakh per hectare in 8 months.

106 Level-1: EXTENSIVE FRESHWATER PRAWN CULTURE Extensive culture means rearing in ponds (but also in other impoundments such as reservoirs, irrigation ponds and rice fields) which produce less than 500 kg/ha/yr of freshwater prawns. They are stocked, often from wild sources, with PL or juveniles at 1-4/m2. There is no control of water quality; the growth or mortality of the prawns is not normally monitored; supplemental feeding is not normally supplied; and organic fertilisation is rarely applied. Level-2: SEMI-INTENSIVE FRESHWATER CULTURE PRAWN Semi-intensive systems involve stocking PL or juvenile freshwater prawns (usually from hatcheries) at 4-20/m2 in ponds, and result in a range of productivity of more than 500 kg/ha/yr and less than that defined as intensive in this box. Fertilisation is used and a balanced feed ration is supplied. Predators and competitors are controlled and water quality, prawn health and growth rate are monitored. This form of culture is the most common in tropical areas. Level-3: INTENSIVE FRESHWATER PRAWN CULTURE Intensive culture refers to freshwater prawn farming in small earth or concrete ponds (up to 0.2 ha) provided with high water exchange and continuous aeration, stocked at more than 20/m2 and achieving an output of more than kg/ha/yr. Construction and maintenance costs are high and a high degree of management is required, which includes the use of a nutritionally complete feed, the elimination of predators and competitors, and strict control over all aspects of water quality.. Brackish water aquaculture Brackish water aquaculture in India is restricted to shrimp farming utilizing semi-intensive culture practices mainly with giant tiger prawn at stocking densities of million/ha. With the provision of a high protein diet, water exchange, aeration and improved health management, production levels of 4 6 tonnes/ha have been demonstrated in a production period of 4 5 months. However, the presence of white spot syndrome during drastically reduced prawn farming activity in the late 1990s. The adoption of a more cautious approach including moderate stocking densities and good management practices has helped in the revival of the sector and in sustaining shrimp production of the country. Furthermore, with the recent introduction of Penaeus vannamei, the shrimp culture is again regaining its glory of export earner at large. The brackish water aquaculture sector is mainly supported by shrimp production, as well as, the giant tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon), which is responsible for the bulk of production followed by the recently introduced whiteleg shrimp, Penaeus vannamei. In fact, the culture of this shrimp picked up on par with tiger shrimp in very short span of time. Although India possesses several other potential species of finfish and shellfish, the production of these, is still very low key. Page 105 of 370

The major cause of WSD is White spot syndrome virus. (WSSV) It could occur at each stage of the cropping cycle. The risk factors at each stage of the cropping cycle and their relationship to WSD outbreaks are illustrated below in a web of disease causation The following summarize the main points shown in the web : A WSD outbreak is the end result of a series of actions or changes from healthy shrimp through to disease outbreak. At each stage of the cropping cycle, a number of factors influence the development of the disease in individual animals and also in the population of shrimp in each pond. WSSV can enter the shrimp and pond through different routes, including shrimp seed, water, carrier animals and transfer of infected animals and farm equipment from one farm to another. Adverse environmental factors combined with a high prevalence of infected shrimp among the pond population are necessary for a mass disease outbreak to occur. Page 106 of 370

108 Risk Management-Issues to be addressed to avoid WSD are as follows:- It is important to keep predators and competitors out of the pond. Initially, the pond should be filled and the water treated with calcium hypochlorite at 15 to 20 ppm active chlorine. Once the pond is filled, water exchange should be reduced to a minimum for at least the first month after stocking. It is also important to ensure that the incoming water is free from animals and has not been contaminated by wastes from other farms. Reservoir is essential for treatment of incoming water. Early detection of the problem is extremely important. The shrimp should be examined regularly for signs of disease, especially if there is an increased risk of infection. FISHERIES SECTOR-CONTRIBUTION TO ECONOMY The fisheries sector contributes to the national income, exports, food and nutritional security and employment generation. As per the estimates of the Central Statistical Organisation (CSO), of the Government of India, the value of GDP from fisheries sector at current prices during was Rs 65,541 crores, which is 4.47 per cent of the total GDP of agriculture and allied sectors. Fish contributes substantially to the domestic food security of India which has a per capita consumption of more than 6.00 kg per annum. With freshwater aquaculture being a homestead activity in several parts of the country, besides adding to the nutritional security it also helps in bringing additional income to rural households. The network of 429 FFDAs has brought about 8.05 lakh ha of water under modern fish culture operations benefiting approximately 13, 86 lakh beneficiaries. The rapid growth of the sector has generated huge employment opportunities for professional, skilled and semi-skilled workers for the different support activities such as construction and the management of farms, hatcheries, feed mills, processing units etc. It has been estimated that over 3,00,000 jobs have been generated in the brackish water sector alone in the main and supporting areas for shrimp culture, although information on exact numbers involved in aquaculture is not available.

109 TRENDS ISSUES AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE INDIAN AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY During , marine products exports reached an all-time high of Rs 18,856 crores. Marine product exports, crossed all previous records in quantity, rupee value and US$ terms. Exports aggregated to 9,28,215 tonnes valued at Rs. 18,85,626 crores and USD 3, million. Compared to the previous year, seafood exports recorded a growth of 7.68 percent in quantity, percent in rupee and 0.1 percent growth in US$ earnings, respectively. During , frozen shrimp from culture sector continued to be the major export value item accounting a share of percent of the total US$ earnings. Shrimp exports during the period increased by percent, percent and 3.56 percent in quantity, rupee value and US$ value, respectively. There was a steep drop in unit value realization of frozen shrimp at percent. Fish, has retained its prime position as the principal export item in quantity terms and the second largest export item in value terms, accounted for a share of about percent in quantity and percent in US$ earnings. Unit value realization of fish decreased by 8.79 percent. Chilled items have shown a positive growth in quantity (26.27 percent), rupee value (50.27 percent) and US$ (34.91 percent). The unit value realization also increased by 6.84 percent. Aquaculture in the past ten years has witnessed both horizontal and vertical expansion, with total production increasing from 0.37 million tonnes in 1980 to 4.43 million tonnes during , an increase of over 12 fold. Conventional farming practices using carp, as well as an increased emphasis on diversified culture of freshwater prawns and to some extent catfish, are important areas of growth in the freshwater aquaculture sector. Greater adoption of modern farming techniques and assured higher profit margins in carp culture over most other agricultural enterprises has attracted farmers to fish farming. Freshwater aquaculture has further witnessed diversification through the incorporation of high valued species like freshwater prawn and has increased its production from 455 tonnes in 1992 to over 30,000 tonnes in Aquaculture over recent years has not only led to substantial socio-economic benefits such as increased nutritional levels, income, employment and foreign exchange, but has also brought vast un-utilized and under-utilized land and water resources under culture. With freshwater aquaculture being compatible with other farming systems, it is largely environmentally friendly and provides for recycling and utilization of several types of organic wastes. Over the years, however, culture practices have undergone considerable intensification and with the possibility of obtaining high productivity levels there has been a state of flux between the different farming practices. In the brackish water sector there were issues of waste generation, conversion of agricultural land, salinization, degradation of soil and the environment due to the extensive use of drugs and chemicals, destruction of mangroves and so on. Though some of these issues posed concerns, most however, were isolated instances with the bulk of farming conforming to eco-requirements. Source:- FUTURE PROSPECTS OF AQUACULTURE The global market for Aquaculture and Fisheries is projected to reach 188 million tons by 2020, driven by surging consumption of seafood in both developed as well as developing regions and the continuous decline in natural fish stock. Globally, demand for seafood has been growing, resulting in over exploitation of natural resources and production stagnation from captured fisheries. Consumer shift towards seafood as a source of protein and increased demand for exotic fish species such as shrimp and oysters are driving growth in the global aquaculture market. In developing economies, urban aquaponics practices are gaining prominence as a means to combat malnutrition and food crisis. Expanding population, rising health consciousness among consumers and increasing disposable incomes are expected to continue driving demand for seafood products, thereby providing substantial growth opportunities for aquaculture in the coming years. The market is also expected to benefit from the rising significance of fish gelatin, increasing preference for micronutrient-rich foods like fish together with increased use of fish proteins in functional foods and supplements. Page 108 of 370

110 Sustainable seafood and organic aquaculture practices are gaining prominence, globally, led by rising awareness over environmentally harmful fishing techniques. Focus is also on increasing the area devoted to aquaculture and enhancing the productivity per unit area in existing aquaculture areas by adopting species offering higher yield such as carp, tilapia, mollusks and crustaceans. Other factors driving growth in the market include expanding population, and growing popularity of urban aquaculture and aquaponics against a backdrop of increased interest in sustainable and waste-free fish farming practices. The low per capita protein consumption in developing countries offers immense untapped opportunities for future growth. Source: Copyright - Reproduced with Permission - Page 109 of 370

Driven by rich experience of more than 20 years in aquaculture, innovation and investment in R&D, our Promoters strategized to capitalize on the growing global demand of shrimps and instituted our Company under the name Zeal Aqua Private Limited in March 2009 with a vision to develop an advanced, sustained and fully integrated aquaculture system across India. Subsequently in March 2015, our Company was converted into a public limited company and its name was changed to Zeal Aqua Limited. The revolution of aquaculture industry gained momentum, with the realization of the government to make commercial use of coastal lands which could not be used for agricultural purposes. The introduction of schemes of Government to allot coastal lands for aquaculture purposes to promote this industry and generate a source of revenue for farmers motivated our Promoters to enter this industry. Our Promoters who were individually culturing shrimps joined hands in 2009 to form our Company to make the business scalable and reap the benefits of synergy. At present, our Company has 81 ponds spread over around 102 hectares of land, wherein the land is being used by our Company in accordance with collaboration agreements entered with various parties. The said collaboration agreements ensure continuity of land availability on which our Company constructs ponds. In addition to shrimp farming on own ponds, our Company is also engaged in satellite farming whereby our Company supplies inputs on credit to small farmers and buys shrimps from these farmers. We deploy our specific quality control measures and the farmers under satellite farming are required to adhere to our farming standards. The satellite farming enables companies to scale up and multiply its production without putting up physical infrastructure on its own. This flexible model of shrimp production helps our Company to efficiently manage growing demand of shrimps. Our growing operations are witnessed by our sales turnover which has scaled multifold over the years. Our Company now intends to make a forward integration and is in the process of setting up a cold storage unit with processing facilities. This shall open our avenues to international markets. This is one of our major step in developing an integrated aquaculture system. Our Company not only believes in growing in numbers, but it believes in growing technologically and in an eco-friendly manner. With the objective of enhancing productivity, quality and minimize environmental degradation our Company has taken various measures such as introduction of PE Line Ponds, use of qualitative feeds, bio-security measures such as fencing and water management among others. Our state of art infrastructure and farming practices have been recognized and has fetched us the following recognitions: CIFE award in year Bhumi Nirman Award in 2011 Fisheries excellence award by Doordarshan Best Farmers for L.Vannemai by MPEDA in 2013 We believe in qualitative production with an eco-friendly approach and have thereby developed a longcontinuing relationship with our customers. With the experience of our Promoters, technological drive, continuous research, supplier tie-ups, customer relationships, government support and industry demand for shrimps and a forward integration in pipeline, our Company aims to become largest shrimp house in India and capture global markets as well.

114 OUR BUSINESS PROCESS Page 113 of 370

115 Process in brief: Our Company has entered into collaboration with many third parties for usage of their land. At present we have agreements entitling us to use around 102 hectares of land. In addition to these collaborations, we have also made an application for allotment of land to the Government of Gujarat. Our business process may be broadly divided into the following steps: Pond preparation Bio security measures Water filling and management Shrimp stocking & breeding Harvesting Sale Pond Preparation Our Company prepares two types of Ponds i.e. either Earthen Ponds or PE lined Ponds. Pond preparation starts with the cleaning and removal of top soil on the land. Thereafter, the lands are dried and ploughed. After ploughing of land, land is leveled. Post leveling, the PE lining activity is undertaken in case a PE lined pond has to be prepared. Ponds are then, fertilized. Once the ponds are prepared, the Company install bio-security measures at the sites. Page 114 of 370

116 Bio-security measures Some of the bio-security measures applied by our Company are: Bird Fencing Foot Dip Hand dip Crab Fencing Water filling and water management Once bio-security measures are installed at the site, the ponds are filled with water. Our Company pumps in water from the local creeks to the reservoirs situated at the sites. Before filling the water, water filtration process is carried out. Post pond filling, we set up aerators. These aerator helps in maintaining the oxygen level in the water. Water is then checked for PH levels, salinity and chlorination levels. A proper water treatment programme is undertaken by our Company. Water treatment is followed by water culture. Page 115 of 370

117 Shrimp stocking and breeding Our Company produces two kinds of shrimps i.e. Tiger shrimps (P. monodon) and White shrimps (L.Vannamei). We procure certified and tested seeds from hatcheries. These seeds are stocked using Hapa boats. Usual stocking size is Post larve (PL) 8-9 for L.Vannamei and PL 20 for P. monodon. Thereafter water quality is monitored. Water quality monitoring is an essential part in this process. Shrimp being a live product, any changes in desired PH levels, chlorination levels, etc. may hamper the growth of the shrimps. We make constant efforts to technologically upgrade this process. We have installed aerators, auto PH level checkers, etc. for monitoring the water quality. Also we have supervisors and technicians at various sites who oversee the process on regular basis. The shrimps are then feeded with feeds. At different levels of growth of shrimps, different kinds of feeds are provided to the shrimps. To prevent the shrimps from undue diseases, probiotics are also used in the process. Page 116 of 370

118 Harvesting Post 120 days of stocking with shrimp seeds, the shrimps can be partially harvested. Before harvesting of seeds, the same is sample tested by MPEDA. Post days, the shrimps are fully harvested. One of the important quality of our shrimps, is that they are free from antibiotics. After the shrimps are fully harvested, sludge disposal is carried out. Sale of Shrimps The shrimps are weighed and sold to the processing houses. OUR AQUACULTURE FACILITY Our Company has entered into collaboration agreements with various third parties wherein, we are entitled to develop shrimp farming facilities on the premises owned by these parties against agreed consideration, subject to the terms and conditions of the respective agreements. Our Company owns around 81 ponds spread over 102 hectares of these lands in the region of Surat. Page 117 of 370

In India, sales tax is levied both at the federal level under the Central Sales Tax Act, 1956 as well as the state level under the respective state legislation. If the goods move between States pursuant to a sale arrangement, then the taxability of such sale is determined by the Central Sales Tax Page 131 of 370

133 Act, On the other hand, the taxability of a sale of movable goods within the jurisdiction of the State is determined as per the local sales tax/value Added Tax legislation in place within such State. Central Sales Tax is payable by a dealer (i.e. a person who carries on the business of buying, selling, supplying or distributing goods) on his sales turnover at the rate prescribed in the VAT statute of the State from where the movement of the goods originate. However, a dealer is entitled to a concessional rate of 3% tax on goods which are sold to another registered dealer who intends to further re-sell them or use them in the manufacture or processing for further sale or for certain other specified purposes, subject to the condition that purchasing dealer issues a statutory Form C to the selling dealer. Every dealer, who in the course of inter-state trade or commerce, sells to a registered dealer goods of the description referred to in sub-section (3), shall be liable to pay tax under this Act, which shall be three per cent, of his turnover or at the rate applicable to the sale or purchase of such goods inside the appropriate State under the sales tax law of that State, whichever is lower 17. Gujarat Value Added Tax Act, 2003 All the states have in force a separate VAT statute which prescribes the rates at which VAT will be levied on taxable goods sold within that state. VAT is usually payable by a 'dealer' of goods (i.e. a person who carries on the business of selling or purchasing goods within a state) on its sales turnover. Depending on the schedule in which a good is categorized, VAT would be either exempt or levied at the rate of 1%, 4%, 12.5% or such other rate as the State Government notifies from time to time. VAT is a system of multi-point levies on each of the purchases in the supply chain with the facility of setoff input tax on sales whereby tax is paid at the stage of purchase of goods by a trader and on purchase of raw materials by a manufacturer. VAT is a consumption tax applicable to all commercial activities involving the production and distribution of goods and the provisions of services, and each State has its own VAT Act under which persons liable to pay VAT must register and obtain a registration number from the Sales Tax Officer of their respective State. The following are the rules which are applicable to the Company: Gujarat Value Added Tax Rules, Service Tax Chapter V of the Finance Act, 1994 as amended, provides for the levy of a service tax in respect of taxable services, defined therein. The service provider of taxable services is required to collect service tax from the recipient of such services and pay such tax to the Government. Every person who is liable to pay this service tax must register himself with the appropriate authorities. According to Rule 6 of the Service Tax Rules, every assesse is required to pay service tax in TR 6 challan by the 6th of the month immediately following the month to which it relates.

The professional taxes are charged on the incomes of individuals, profits of business or gains in vocations. The professional tax is charged as per the List II of the Constitution. The professional taxes are classified under various tax slabs in India. The tax payable under the State Acts by any person earning a salary or wage shall be deducted by his employer from the salary or wages payable to such person before such salary or wages is paid to him, and such Page 132 of 370

134 employer shall, irrespective of whether such deduction has been made or not when the salary and wage is paid to such persons, be liable to pay tax on behalf of such person and employer has to obtain the registration from the assessing authority in the prescribed manner. Every person liable to pay tax under these Acts (other than a person earning salary or wages, in respect of whom the tax is payable by the employer), shall obtain a certificate of enrolment from the assessing authority. 20. The Registration Act, 1908 The Registration Act, 1908 ( Registration Act ) was passed to consolidate the enactments relating to the registration of documents. The main purpose for which the Registration Act was designed was to ensure information about all deals concerning land so that correct land records could be maintained. The Registration Act is used for proper recording of transactions relating to other immovable property also. The Registration Act provides for registration of other documents also, which can give these documents more authenticity. Registering authorities have been provided in all the districts for this purpose. 21. The Indian Stamp Act, 1899 Stamp duty in relation to certain specified categories of instruments as specified under Entry 91 of the list, is governed by the provisions of the Stamp Act which is enacted by the Central Government. All others instruments are required to be stamped, as per the rates prescribed by the respective State Governments. Stamp duty is required to be paid on all the documents that are registered and as stated above the percentage of stamp duty payable varies from one state to another. Certain states in India have enacted their own legislation in relation to stamp duty while the other states have adopted and amended the Stamp Act, as per the rates applicable in the state. On such instruments stamp duty is payable at the rates specified in Schedule I of the Stamp Act. Instruments chargeable to duty under the Stamp Act which are not duly stamped are incapable of being admitted in court as evidence of the transaction contained therein. The Stamp Act also provides for impounding of instruments which are not sufficiently stamped or not stamped at all. Unstamped and deficiently stamped instruments can be impounded by the authority and validated by payment of penalty. The amount of penalty payable on such instruments may vary from state to state. The following stamp duty legislations are applicable to us: Gujarat Stamp Act, Gujarat Stamp Act, 1958 Stamp duty on instruments in the state of Gujarat is governed by the Gujarat Stamp Act, 1958 ( Stamp Act ). The Stamp Act levies stamp duty on documents/instruments by which any right or liability is or purports to be created, transferred, limited, extended, extinguished or recorded. All instruments chargeable with duty and executed by any person within the State of Gujarat are required to be stamped before or at the time of execution or immediately thereafter on the next working day following the day of execution. The Stamp Act also provides for impounding of instruments not duly stamped. The Stamp Act further provides that other than those specifically excluded, instruments chargeable with stamp duty and not duly stamped are incapable of being admitted in evidence for any purpose by any person having by law or consent o parties authority to receive evidence, or shall be acted upon, registered or authenticated by any such person or by any public officer. 23. The Indian Contract Act, 1872 The Indian Contract Act, 1872 ( Contract Act ) codifies the way in which a contract may be entered into, executed, implementation of the provisions of a contract and effects of breach of a contract. A person is free to contract on any terms he chooses. The Contract Act consists of limiting factors Page 133 of 370

135 subject to which contract may be entered into, executed and the breach enforced. It provides a framework of rules and regulations that govern formation and performance of contract. The contracting parties themselves decide the rights and duties of parties and terms of agreement. 24. The Specific Relief Act, 1963 The Specific Relief Act, 1963 ( Specific Relief Act ) applies both to movable property and immovable property and is also complimentary to the provisions of the Contract Act. The Specific Relief Act applies in cases where the Court can order specific performance of a contract. Specific relief can be granted only for purpose of enforcing individual civil rights and not for the mere purpose of enforcing a civil law. Specific performance means Court will order the party to perform his part of agreement, instead of imposing on him any monetary liability to pay damages to other party. 25. The Competition Act, 2002 The Competition Act 2002 ( Competition Act ) aims to prevent anti-competitive practices that cause or are likely to cause an appreciable adverse effect on competition in the relevant market in India. The Competition Act regulates anti-competitive agreements, abuse of dominant position and combinations. The Competition Commission of India ( Competition Commission ) which became operational from May 20, 2009 has been established under the Competition Act to deal with inquiries relating to anti-competitive agreements and abuse of dominant position and regulate combinations. The Competition Act also provides that the Competition Commission has the jurisdiction to inquire into and pass orders in relation to an anti-competitive agreement, abuse of dominant position or a combination, which even though entered into, arising or taking place outside India or signed between one or more non-indian parties, but causes an appreciable adverse effect in the relevant market in India. 26. The Companies Act, 1956 The Companies Act, 1956 deals with laws relating to companies and certain other associations. It was enacted by the parliament in The Act primarily regulates the formation, financing, functioning and winding up of companies. The Companies Act, 1956 prescribes regulatory mechanism regarding all relevant aspects, including organizational, financial and managerial aspects of companies. It deals with issue, allotment and transfer of securities and various aspects relating to company management. It provides for standard of disclosure in public issues of capital, particularly in the fields of company management and projects, information about other listed companies under the same management, and management perception of risk factors. In the functioning of the corporate sector, although freedom of companies is important, protection of the investors and shareholders, on whose funds they flourish, is equally important. The Companies Act, 1956 plays the balancing role between these two competing factors, namely, management autonomy and investor protection. 27. The Companies Act, 2013 The Companies Act, 2013, has been introduced to replace the existing Companies Act, 1956 in a phased manner. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has vide its notification dated September 12, 2013 has notified 98 Sections of the Companies Act, 2013 and the same are applicable from the date of the aforesaid notification.

Page 182 of 370

184 All the assets and liabilities have been classified as current or non-current as per the Company's normal operating cycle and other criteria set out in Revised Schedule VI to the Companies Act, Based on the nature of products and the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realization in cash and cash equivalent, the Company has ascertained its operating cycle to be less than 12 months. Use of estimates The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Indian GAAP requires the Management to make estimates and assumptions considered in the reported amounts of assets and liabilities (including contingent liabilities) and the reported income and expenses during the year. The Management believes that the estimates used in preparation of the financial statements are prudent and reasonable. Future results could differ due to these estimates and the differences between the actual results and the estimates are recognised in the periods in which the results are known / materialise. Cash and cash equivalents (for purposes of Cash Flow Statement) Cash comprises cash on hand and demand deposits with banks. Cash equivalents are short-term balances (with an original maturity of three months or less from the date of acquisition), highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and which are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value. Cash flow statement Cash flows are reported using the indirect method, whereby loss before extraordinary items and tax is adjusted for the effects of transactions of non-cash nature, any deferrals or accruals of past or future cash receipts or payments and item of income or expenses associated with investing or financing cash flows. The cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities of the Company are segregated. Depreciation and amortisation Depreciation on Fixed Assets is Provided in manner Prescribed in Schedule II of Companies Act, Intangible assets are amortised over the estimated useful lives of the assets or period of 3 years, whichever is shorter. Revenue recognition (a) 'Sales are recognised, net of returns and trade discounts, on transfer of significant risks and rewards of ownership to the buyer, which generally coincides with the delivery of goods to customers. (b) Gross Sales (net of Return) include VAT/CST, wherever applicable. (c) Other Income is recognized on accrual basis. (d) Dividend Income is recognized when right to receive dividend is established.

185 (g) Insurance and other miscellaneous claims are recognized on receipt/acceptance of claim. Contractual pass through incentives, benefits, etc. are recognized on receipt basis. Tangible fixed assets, Intangible assets and work-in-progress Fixed assets are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and impairment, if any. Direct costs are capitalized until fixed assets are ready for use. Capital work-in-progress comprises of the cost of fixed assets that are not yet ready for their intended use at the reporting date. Intangible assets are recoded at the consideration paid for acquisition of such assets and are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment. Investments Long-term investments are carried individually at acquisition cost less provision for diminution, other than temporary, in the value of long term investments. Borrowing costs Borrowing costs relating to the acquisition / construction of qualifying assets are capitalised until the time all substantial activities necessary to prepare the qualifying assets for their intended use are complete. A qualifying asset is one that necessarily takes substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use. Capitalisation of borrowing costs is suspended and charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss during extended periods when active development activity on the qualifying assets is interrupted. Inventories Finished goods are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Earnings per share Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing the profit / (loss) after tax (including the post-tax effect of extraordinary items, if any) by the weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing the profit / (loss) after tax (including the post-tax effect of extraordinary items, if any) as adjusted for dividend, interest and other charges to expense or income relating to the dilutive potential equity shares, by the weighted average number of equity shares considered for deriving basic earnings per share and the weighted average number of equity shares which could have been issued on the conversion of all dilutive potential equity shares. Potential equity shares are deemed to be dilutive only if their conversion to equity shares would decrease the net profit per share from continuing ordinary operations. Potential dilutive equity shares are deemed to be converted as at the beginning of the period, unless they have been issued at a later date. Preliminary Expenses The balance of Preliminary expenses is carried as a Non-Current asset and is amortised over a period of 5 years from the date of the issue of shares. Page 184 of 370

Driven by rich experience of more than 20 years in aquaculture, innovation and investment in R&D, our Promoters strategized to capitalize on the growing global demand of shrimps and instituted our Company under the name Zeal Aqua Private Limited in March 2009 with a vision to develop an advanced, sustained and fully integrated aquaculture system across India. Subsequently in March 2015, our Company was converted into a public limited company and its name was changed to Zeal Aqua Limited. The revolution of aquaculture industry gained momentum, with the realization of the government to make commercial use of coastal lands which could not be used for agricultural purposes. The introduction of schemes of Government to allot coastal lands for aquaculture purposes to promote this industry and generate a source of revenue for farmers motivated our Promoters to enter this industry. Our Promoters who were individually culturing shrimps joined hands in 2009 to form our Company to make the business scalable and reap the benefits of synergy. At present, our Company has 81 ponds spread over around 102 hectares of land, wherein the land is being used by our Company in accordance with collaboration agreements entered with various parties. The said collaboration agreements ensure continuity of land availability on which our Company constructs ponds. Page 204 of 370

206 In addition to shrimp farming on own ponds, our Company is also engaged in satellite farming whereby our Company supplies inputs on credit to small farmers and buys shrimps from these farmers. We deploy our specific quality control measures and the farmers under satellite farming are required to adhere to our farming standards. The satellite farming enables companies to scale up and multiply its production without putting up physical infrastructure on its own. This flexible model of shrimp production helps our Company to efficiently manage growing demand of shrimps. Our growing operations are witnessed by our sales turnover which has scaled multifold over the years. Our Company now intends to make a forward integration and is in the process of setting up a cold storage unit with processing facilities. This shall open our avenues to international markets. This is one of our major step in developing an integrated aquaculture system. Our Company not only believes in growing in numbers, but it believes in growing technologically and in an eco-friendly manner. With the objective of enhancing productivity, quality and minimize environmental degradation our Company has taken various measures such as introduction of PE Line Ponds, use of qualitative feeds, bio-security measures such as fencing and water management among others. Our state of art infrastructure and farming practices have been recognized and has fetched us the following recognitions: CIFE award in year Bhumi Nirman Award in 2011 Fisheries excellence award by Doordarshan Best Farmers for L.Vannemai by MPEDA in 2013 We believe in qualitative production with an eco-friendly approach and have thereby developed a long-continuing relationship with our customers. With the experience of our Promoters, technological drive, continuous research, supplier tie-ups, customer relationships, government support and industry demand for shrimps and a forward integration in pipeline, our Company aims to become largest shrimp house in India and capture global markets as well.

Our results of operations and financial conditions are affected by numerous factors including the following: Competition from other players. Allotment and renewal of Land from Government Outbreak of diseases affecting shrimps International economy scenario and demand Environmental Conditions Significant Accounting Policies Basis of accounting and preparation of financial statements These financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in India (Indian GAAP) to comply with the Accounting Standards notified under section 211(3C) & the other relevant provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 and Companies Act 2013 and other pronouncements of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. All the assets and liabilities have been classified as current or non-current as per the Company's normal operating cycle and other criteria set out in Revised Schedule VI to the Companies Act, Based on the nature of products and the time between the acquisition of assets for processing and their realization in cash and cash equivalent, the Company has ascertained its operating cycle to be less than 12 months. Page 207 of 370

209 Use of estimates The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Indian GAAP requires the Management to make estimates and assumptions considered in the reported amounts of assets and liabilities (including contingent liabilities) and the reported income and expenses during the year. The Management believes that the estimates used in preparation of the financial statements are prudent and reasonable. Future results could differ due to these estimates and the differences between the actual results and the estimates are recognised in the periods in which the results are known / materialise. Cash and cash equivalents (for purposes of Cash Flow Statement) Cash comprises cash on hand and demand deposits with banks. Cash equivalents are short-term balances (with an original maturity of three months or less from the date of acquisition), highly liquid investments that are readily convertible into known amounts of cash and which are subject to insignificant risk of changes in value. Cash flow statement Cash flows are reported using the indirect method, whereby loss before extraordinary items and tax is adjusted for the effects of transactions of non-cash nature, any deferrals or accruals of past or future cash receipts or payments and item of income or expenses associated with investing or financing cash flows. The cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities of the Company are segregated. Depreciation and amortisation Depreciation on Fixed Assets is Provided in manner Prescribed in Schedule II of Companies Act, Intangible assets are amortised over the estimated useful lives of the assets or period of 3 years, whichever is shorter. Revenue recognition (a) 'Sales are recognised, net of returns and trade discounts, on transfer of significant risks and rewards of ownership to the buyer, which generally coincides with the delivery of goods to customers. (b) Gross Sales (net of Return) include VAT/CST, wherever applicable. (c) Other Income is recognized on accrual basis. (d) Dividend Income is recognized when right to receive dividend is established. (e) Interest Income is recognized when no significant uncertainty as to its realization exists and is accounted for on time proportion basis at contracted rates. (f) Scrap, Salvage/Waste materials and sweepings are accounted for on realization. (g) Insurance and other miscellaneous claims are recognized on receipt/acceptance of claim. Contractual pass through incentives, benefits, etc. are recognized on receipt basis. Page 208 of 370

210 Tangible fixed assets, Intangible assets and work-in-progress Fixed assets are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and impairment, if any. Direct costs are capitalized until fixed assets are ready for use. Capital work-in-progress comprises of the cost of fixed assets that are not yet ready for their intended use at the reporting date. Intangible assets are recoded at the consideration paid for acquisition of such assets and are carried at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment. Investments Long-term investments are carried individually at acquisition cost less provision for diminution, other than temporary, in the value of long term investments. Borrowing costs Borrowing costs relating to the acquisition / construction of qualifying assets are capitalised until the time all substantial activities necessary to prepare the qualifying assets for their intended use are complete. A qualifying asset is one that necessarily takes substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use. Capitalisation of borrowing costs is suspended and charged to the Statement of Profit and Loss during extended periods when active development activity on the qualifying assets is interrupted. Inventories Finished goods are valued at the lower of cost and net realisable value. Earnings per share Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing the profit / (loss) after tax (including the post-tax effect of extraordinary items, if any) by the weighted average number of equity shares outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing the profit / (loss) after tax (including the post-tax effect of extraordinary items, if any) as adjusted for dividend, interest and other charges to expense or income relating to the dilutive potential equity shares, by the weighted average number of equity shares considered for deriving basic earnings per share and the weighted average number of equity shares which could have been issued on the conversion of all dilutive potential equity shares. Potential equity shares are deemed to be dilutive only if their conversion to equity shares would decrease the net profit per share from continuing ordinary operations. Potential dilutive equity shares are deemed to be converted as at the beginning of the period, unless they have been issued at a later date. Taxes on income 'Current tax is the amount of tax payable on the taxable income for the year as determined in accordance with the provisions of the Income Tax Act, Minimum Alternate Tax (MAT) paid in accordance with the tax laws, which gives future economic benefits in the form of adjustment to future income tax liability, is considered as an asset if there is convincing evidence that the Company will pay normal income tax. Accordingly, MAT is recognised as an asset in the Balance Sheet when it is probable that future economic benefit associated with it will flow to the Company. Page 209 of 370

211 Deferred tax is recognised on timing differences, being the differences between the taxable income and the accounting income that originate in one period and are capable of reversal in one or more subsequent periods. Deferred tax is measured using the tax rates and the tax laws enacted or substantially enacted as at the reporting date. Deferred tax liabilities are recognised for all timing differences. Deferred tax assets in respect of unabsorbed depreciation and carry forward of losses are recognised only if there is virtual certainty that there will be sufficient future taxable income available to realise such assets. Deferred tax assets are recognised for timing differences of other items only to the extent that reasonable certainty exists that sufficient future taxable income will be available against which these can be realised. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are offset if such items relate to taxes on income levied by the same governing tax laws and the Company has a legally enforceable right for such set off. Deferred tax assets are reviewed at each Balance Sheet date for their reliability. Current and deferred tax relating to items directly recognised in equity is recognised in equity and not in the Statement of Profit and Loss. Provisions and contingencies A provision is recognised when the Company has a present obligation as a result of past events and it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made. Provisions (excluding retirement benefits) are not discounted to their present value and are determined based on the best estimate required to settle the obligation at the Balance Sheet date. These are reviewed at each Balance Sheet date and adjusted to reflect the current best estimates. Contingent liabilities are disclosed in the Notes. Employee benefits Short-term employee benefits are recognized as an expense at the undiscounted amount in the Profit and Loss account of the year in which the related service is rendered. Post-employment and other long term employee benefits are recognized as an expense in the Profit and Loss account for the year in which the employee has rendered services. The expense is recognized at the present value of the amount payable determined using actuarial valuation techniques. Actuarial gains and losses in respect of post-employment and other long term benefits are charged to the Profit and Loss account. Foreign currency transactions Foreign currency transactions are recorded on the basis of exchange rates prevailing on the date of the transactions. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies as at the balance sheet date are translated at the closing exchange rates on that date. Exchange differences arising on foreign exchange transactions during the year and on restatement of monetary assets and liability are recognized in the profit and loss account of the year. Impairment of Assets An asset is treated as impaired when the carrying cost of asset exceeds its recoverable value. An impairment loss is charged to the profit & Loss Account in the year in which an asset is identified as impaired. The impairment loss recognised in prior accounting periods is reversed if there has been a change in the estimate of recoverable account in subsequent period. Page 210 of 370
